Vomitoxins occur naturally on wheat, durum wheat, rye, oats, corn (...) from flowering to maturity. It is favored by cold and wet weather.
From a physical trading perspective, grains with high vomitoxin are likely to be rejected (yet) by the grain elevator and/or its price discounted. The majority of world buyers have 2 ppm maximum. ( 1 ppm in the UK, 0.5 ppm in Norway). Vomitoxins content is closely watch in both the human food sector (industrial food industry) and animal feed (e.g pigs can’t stand it) and it is monitored by grain sampling/analysis (mostly early) in the supply-chain.
If you need advisory to marketing your grains and aren’t afraid of high service costs, please send me a PM.

"If you need advisory to marketing your grains and aren’t afraid of high service costs" - the worst marketing line ever ;-))

That trick where you hammer a nail into your nose doesn't fool anyone now.

No one says “It’s probably just a virus” anymore.

No, they totally did. ‘Det er nok bare en virus’. Not to be confused with “just a flesh wound”.

That’s how Jack Dorsey makes money. The fact that the addled brain of Trinidad has 20-some million followers there is just sad. But she’s got Fox News squarely behind her.

I mean, it kind of makes sense. In Trump world, wrappers are the intellectuals.

You should wear your face on your mask, not on your belly!
