  1. 1. Mycotoxins – an increasing problem? : the effects of climate changes on Fusarium mould populations and the occurrence of fusaro toxins in Swedish cereals

    University essay from SLU/Department of Molecular Sciences

    Author : Johanna Janhager; [2018]
    Keywords : Fusarium spp.; fusarotoxins; climate change; Sweden; cereals; food safety;

    Abstract : Future changes in climate are expected to affect Sweden in the form of an up to 40 % increase in precipitation and a mean temperature that will be elevated by 3 - 4.5 °C by the end of the 21st century. These are conditions that presumably favour growth of Fusarium moulds. READ MORE

  2. 2. Late infection of Fusarium graminearum in winter wheat grown under different nitrogen regimes

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Crop Production Ecology

    Author : Baraa Alkhaled; [2018]
    Keywords : F. graminearum; winter wheat; N fertilizer; late infection; DON; protein content;

    Abstract : Fusarium spp. infection is a serious risk in wheat cultivation worldwide. In addition of reduce grain yield and quality, it also leads to grain and chaff contamination by toxic metabolites (mycotoxins). The mycotoxin deoxynivalenol (DON) is among the most important mycotoxins in Swedish wheat production and is mainly produced by F. READ MORE

  3. 3. Effekten av toxinbindare i syfte att minska upptag och metabolism av deoxynivalenol

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Animal Nutrition and Management

    Author : Elina Toss Ekmyr; [2018]
    Keywords : deoxynivalenol; DON; mykotoxinbindare; adsorberande; biotransformerande; toxinbindare; fodertillsats;

    Abstract : Mykotoxiner är sekundära metaboliter som produceras av mögelsvampar. Deoxynivalenol (DON) är ett vanligt förekommande mykotoxin i spannmål. Grisar kan visa symptom på kronisk toxikos vid nivåer under rekommenderade maxvärden. Bra odlingsrutiner i förebyggande syfte är inte alltid tillräckligt för att förhindra tillväxten av DON.

    Keywords : mykotoxin; häst; hästfoder;

    Abstract : Mykotoxikos är ett samlingsbegrepp för sjukdomstillstånd orsakat av förgiftning med mykotoxin, ett gift producerat av mögelsvampar. Det finns flera olika potentiellt patogena mögelsvampar som kan kontaminera grödor under tillväxt, skörd och lagring och därmed utgöra en hälsorisk för djur som äter dessa grödor. READ MORE
