Be Wary of Wheat Quality after Wet Weather

According to Dr. Max Hawkins, a nutritionist with Alltech’s Mycotoxin Management Team, there have been recent reports of wheat being rejected at grain terminals for DON levels ranging from five ppm to more than 10 ppm.
[LEXINGTON, Ky.] – This summer’s excessive rain has left the wheat harvest lagging behind and the crop in suboptimal condition, according to one grain management expert. Dr. Max Hawkins, a nutritionist with Alltech’s Mycotoxin Management Team, said that the most common mycotoxin issue with wheat is Deoxynivalenol (DON), produced by Fusarium graminareum mold. This is the same mold that produces Fusarium Head Blight (FHB), and the two are commonly associated in wheat. However, in some cases DON can still be present even if FHB is not spotted.
