I think it was a wet Fall which caused a lot of additional testing.
– The principal foreign matter in corn this fall is going to be molds,
either diplodia, fusarium, penicillium, or gibberella. Some of these molds produce mycotoxins
and some do not. The grain elevator must be extremely careful not to allow mycotoxins to
contaminate his grain supply because there is zero tolerance for things like gibberella. Even
ethanol producers must be careful because mycotoxins end up being concentrated in the DDGs
Many states are reporting that the elevators are rejecting both corn and soybeans due to the poor
quality of the grain
