2017 grain quality – Wet spring and draught conditions starting to affect US grain

Severe draught conditions and a wet spring in several states of the US are reflected in 2017 grain quality and condition reports.

Poor to very poor ratings in spring wheat are way above 2016 levels (37% vs 7% last year). There are reports from a number of states in the US with DON contamination in winter wheat.

Dry conditions have also increased the poor to very poor ratings in US corn to double the number compared to a year ago. So far 19% of corn has entered the silking stage.

For more information on current crop conditions in the US and how multiple mycotoxin contamination in grain affects animals compared to contamination with only one type of mycotoxin view the short video below.
