Nf03-570 Fumonisins In Corn, Jim Stack, Michael Carlson Jan 2003

Nf03-570 Fumonisins In Corn, Jim Stack, Michael Carlson

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

During the past two years, millers have rejected some Nebraska food grade corn because it was contaminated with the mycotoxin fumonisin. Most of the contaminated samples and the highest levels of contamination were detected in corn from counties in the eastern half of Nebraska.

Fumonisins are mycotoxins produced by the grain molds Fusarium verticillioides and Fusarium proliferatum. These fungi are commonly found in corn throughout the United States.

This NebFact discusses the cause and occurrence of fumonisin in corn; the effects it has on plants, animals and humans; and management options to minimize fumonisin contamination.
