Climate change and mycotoxins: untangling a complex web
January 27, 2021
The work carried out by the Alltech Mycotoxin Management platform and Alltech Crop Science specifically focuses on the reduction of mycotoxins in finished feed and their impact on animal health, performance and profitability, subsequently helping the global agricultural industry work toward a Planet of Plenty.
Mycotoxins are toxic compounds that are naturally produced by certain types of molds (fungi). Molds that can produce mycotoxins grow on numerous foodstuffs such as cereals, dried fruits, nuts and spices and feedstuffs such as corn, wheat, barley, silage, haylage, grass, etc.
