Jonathan Tarus Pre-harvest aflatoxin intervention has been described (World Mycotoxin Journal, 2016; 9 (5): 771-789). Both insects and nutrient loses continue if moisture is not regulated after the harvest. A combination of pre-harvest biological control mentioned above and moisture regulation (dry chain) after harvest would be a preventive approach.

Good article but maintaining pre-harvest humidity will be difficult.

Ram Singh Thanks for your contribution. To see no aflatoxins at 11% moisture content treatment opens door for interventions to maintain such level of dryness in the value chain.

Dear Vin, An experiment was conducted with variable moisture content in feed. The results showed that at 11% moisture level in feed, aflatoxin biosynthesis did not occur in any of the treatments. However, with the increase in moisture content in feed from 11 to 17%, there was increase in production of the aflatoxins. Complete inhibition of aflatoxins (B1, B2, G1 and G2) synthesis at 13% moisture l ...

Totally agreed on the need of interdisciplinary preventive interventions. Until such approaches are used, the binders should be used. can help to minimize toxicity effects of mycotoxins.

dr murad ali indeed mycotoxins influence rumen fermentation and microflora causing different negative effect including decreased milk yield and milk fat

Agreed with Akos above. After proposing preharvest interventions (https://doi: 10.3389/fmicb.2019.02528), the authors have taken the approach to improve feed quality (https://doi.org/10.3390/toxins11100565). Both of these approaches were published in this forum. Regarding field fungus like Fusarium, similar preventive approaches need to be pursued. Downstream maintenance of value chain would furth ...

Frontiers in Microbiology 10: 2528, 1-18. https://doi: 10.3389/fmicb.2019.02528.Aflasafe seems promising preventive intervention to minimize aflatoxins at harvest time. Genetic resources should also be pursued. Insect damage and nutrient loss continue in absence of safe moisture management after harvest. In absence of the above interventions, the binders are attractive approaches to minimize adver ...

My largest problem that in your chart the first step is the forecasting. The prevention would be better, as I mentioned we have resistance differences to exploit. As it cannot ever be perfect, at least not at out present genetic knowledge, the significantly lower toxin contamination could be treated at a much better efficacy than the high one. This is clear. Toxin binders, antibiotics are expensiv ...
