VOMITOXIN (DON) TESTING
This is the second consecutive corn harvest with vomitoxin values testing higher than typical. Many receivers are testing loads as they arrive, however it is suggested that producers test their own inventory before delivering, so that they have an expectation of where their vomitoxin levels will be. SGS offers testing of the following mycotoxins: Vomitoxin (DON), Aflatoxin, Zearalenone, T-2, and Ochratoxin.
Contact us for more information on these testing capabilities.
