Fusarium tolerance

Fusarium infestation and a resulting mycotoxin formation are playing an increasing role in corn maize cultivation. This has been demonstrated by investigations over many years at the Bavarian State Research Center for Agriculture. Fusarium infection has increased overall as a result of expanded maize cultivation and low host specificity of the fusarium pathogens (maize, grain, grasses). At the same time, the development of Fusarium graminearum and the toxin formation are very dependent on the weather.

We can assist you in controlling fusarium in maize cultivation. For many years, we have been examining an increasing number of varieties for fusarium tolerance.

Why fusarium tolerance is important

Increased mycotoxin contamination in feed causes:

  • Refusal of food
  • Digestive problems
  • Infertility
  • Abortions

Susceptibility to fusarium should be taken into consideration particularly when selecting the variety of corn and CCM maize. Consequently, only varieties that have low susceptibility to fusarium are included in our variety recommendation for corn maize and CCM.
