Climate change and animal
feed: mycotoxin risk mitigation
A look at how feed additives and other new technologies
will be used to mitigate mycotoxin risks

Climate change may drive spread of some

to excessively wet conditions, and the late harvest runs the
risk of making crops more susceptible to mold growth.
"The correlation of extreme weather conditions
and the production of various toxins is well documented," says Pat Frasco, Neogen's director of corporate accounts for milling and grain. "If current trends
continue, producers can expect to continue seeing
higher levels of mycotoxins."
Mycotoxins, the secondary chemical metabolites
produced by fungi, contaminate crops, including
grains and forages, and result in negative health effects
in humans and animals.
"Mycotoxin formation by fungi is highly influenced by climatic conditions, such as temperature,
precipitation and humidity," explains Dr. Alexandra
Weaver, global technical support, Alltech Mycotoxin
Management. "Environmental warming, greater
precipitation or drought, and increasing concentrations
of gasses such as carbon dioxide may impact mycotoxin production by mycotoxigenic fungi."

Increasing prevalence of mycotoxins
There has been an increase in mycotoxin
contamination in crops worldwide. According to
Biomin's September 2019 PROcheck mycotoxin
survey, 97% of its 2018 U.S. corn sample pool tested
positive for at least one mycotoxin; meanwhile,
co-contamination was found in 75% of its
samples from around the world.

limate change is a major concern worldwide -
making headlines and mobilizing the world's
leaders to take action.
For example, the United Nations Framework
Convention on Climate Change's (UNFCCC) Paris
Agreement aims to lead the global response against
the threat of climate change by keeping a global
temperature increase "below 2 degrees Celsius above
pre-industrial levels and to pursue efforts to limit
the temperature increase even further to 1.5 degrees
Celsius." The agreement has been ratified or acceded
by 185 states and the EU, representing more than 88%
of total global greenhouse gas emissions.
As the climate system has shifted due to warmer
temperatures, new weather patterns have emerged
producing serious challenges for all facets of agriculture. Around the world, weather and temperatures no
longer follow predictable patterns.
Farmers struggle with climate extremes - both
drought and wet conditions - that impact crop
production, leading to inconsistent growing seasons,
crop quality and yields.
For example, according to Neogen's most
recent Monday Mycotoxin report, U.S. corn maturity is
behind its five-year average, with reports of low grain
quality in key states. Spring 2019 planting was delayed due
