“Every year, buying the newly harvest grain is like a betting game”
“MycoMan Predict, the game changer for the planning of mycotoxin management”
“A strong partner for reliable results: Syngenta an expert in mycotoxin prediction modelling”
MycoMan Predict arose from the partnership between Adisseo and Syngenta. The collaboration with Syngenta started some months ago and is an excellent opportunity for the animal nutrition sector to benefit from their crop protection experience. Work on mycotoxin modelling started 20 years ago in France. Grain collectors sent their analysis every year; a model based on the correlation between agronomic practices and weather factors has gradually been established, year after year. The incorporation of agronomic practices makes the model unique. The capability of Syngenta to gather data from grain collectors and work on big data is precious and innovative in the field of mycotoxin risk management pertaining to animal nutrition. Three variables are included in the model regarding agronomic practices. First, the precedent monoculture crop increases the risk, and rotation allows the fungi development cycle to be broken. Second, the varietal sensitivity of the crop is included and, finally, the
tillage that takes place is included. Ploughing allows fungi development to be reduced by burying the spores.
As far as the MycoMan Predict report is concerned, a yearly record of the climatic risk is given for each prediction, which allows the user to compare the current year’s risk with the past risk that he/she has already experienced.
MycoMan Predict furnishes precious data for feed millers to prepare their mycotoxin management during a season. We are happy to share this information with our customers and business partners through a newsletter. If you would like more information, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
