The presentation addresses harvest time mycotoxins modelling in Europe.
The workshop was organized by the European Commission Knowledge Centre for Global Food and Nutrition Security (KCFNS) in collaboration with the main African and European scientific networks working on methods to quantify and reduce mycotoxin contamination of food and feed and grain postharvest losses (The African Postharvest Losses Information System (APHLIS), Mytox-South, Mycokey and African Society of Mycotoxicology (ASM)). Main workshop’s objective was to bring together the postharvest losses and the mycotoxins research networks in Africa and reflect on links and research priorities, which are relevant to both communities. The workshop focused on priority issues for both groups of experts as well as possibilities for integration and collaboration between the networks.
The presentation provides an overview of models developed for the prediction of mycotoxins in maize with some hypothesis on how climate change will affect the development and habitat of those mycotoxins...
The presentation gives an overview of the preliminary results achieved by the African Postharvest Losses Information system (APHLIS) project in agro-climatic mycotoxin risk warning.
