Neogen presents a special webinar covering emerging mycotoxin issues and strategies on Wednesday, February 15, at 11:00 am ET.
The combination of a bumper fall crop and challenging winter weather conditions has created a “perfect storm” for the production of mycotoxins, including some seldom seen in the U.S. and Canada.
What are people seeing in the field? What are the likely consequences and what can be done about them? Please join our experts for an informative webinar on the emerging issue of mycotoxin production in stored grains.
The agenda for the webinar is as follows:
