Feed & Grain Testing

Feed & Grain

Corn, wheat, rice, barley and grain crops are acutely vulnerable to mycotoxins, a family of microcontaminants that pose a threat to quality, safety, and profitability of grain-based products. As regulatory agencies intensify scrutiny of domestic and imported grain commodities for unsafe levels of mycotoxins, farmers, processors, and storage facilities rely on frequent testing at every phase of production. VICAM offers a comprehensive line of GIPSA and AOAC-approved mycotoxin testing solutions.
