Some of these minor mycotoxins include T-2 toxin, fusaric acid, cyclopiazeaic acid, patulin, gliotoxin, citrinin, and ergot alkaloids.
Although commonly found only at low concentrations on corn, fusaric acid is of concern due to the fact that it may have synergistic relationships with other Fusarium produced mycotoxins to increase overall toxicity.
Although less prominent, FUM and fusaric acid are two other mycotoxins which can be problematic to the swine industry.
Although not one of the major mycotoxins, fusaric acid is becoming increasingly concerning for the swine industry.
These symptoms are being seen on farms this winter, he says, and the mycotoxin fusaric acid
( which is produced by fusarium mould ( is being identified as a cause.
