Research Project: Mycotoxin Testing Services at Virginia Tech

Location: Crop Production and Protection

Project Number: 0500-00053-005-154-G
Project Type: Grant

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

The specific objectives of the research are to: (1) provide analytical services necessary to develop new cultivars of wheat and barley with reduced potential for DON contamination and to (2) facilitate DON testing that will improve chemical and cultural practices necessary to reduce DON contamination in wheat and barley.

DON will be quantified in wheat and barley samples using GC/MS. We are committed to the long-term management of a successful and productive mycotoxin testing lab for the USWBSI. We continue to manage USWBSI testing services at Virginia Tech.
