Research Project: Diagnostic Services for Deoxynivalenol

Location: Crop Production and Protection

Project Number: 0500-00053-005-090-G
Project Type: Grant

Start Date: May 1, 2022
End Date: Apr 30, 2026

The goal of this project is to provide rapid, cost-effective, and accurate mycotoxin analysis - especially deoxynivalenol (DON) - for Fusarium Head Blight (FHB or scab) research projects.

The project will use gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) to provide quick and accurate measurement for DON and related mycotoxins, such as 3-acetyl-DON, 15-acetyl-DON and nivalenol. Zearalenone will be analyzed for the projects approved by the executive committee.
