Globally, the average risk level was 62%—meaning that nearly two-thirds of samples had at least one mycotoxin above the threshold levels. On a regional basis, risk levels ranged from a low of 46% in the Middle East to a high of 80% in Asia.

“Risk levels reflect the probability that producers confront mycotoxin contamination in their operations. These results suggest that producers everywhere should be vigilant in monitoring raw commodities and feed for mycotoxin contamination, and consider implementing a robust mycotoxin risk management program,” explained Dr Jenkins.
