    Grain Passport

    As from 1st November 2007 Wheat being delivered to All Flour Mills will be required to have been subject to a Mycotoxin Risk Assessment as part of the Farm Assurance Scheme.

    No Wheat will be accepted by the miller unless it is accompanied by a new style Grain Passport.

    The new passport indicates the level of risk relating to that parcel of wheat and if the wheat is in the High Risk category it will also require a Mycotoxin (DON) test result. A test result is also required in 2007/08 for a ‘medium’ score if the wheat was produced in Lincs; Cambs; Norf; Leics; Northants; Warks; Worcs; Gloucs; Dorset; Hants; or Sussex.

    Mycotoxin (don) Risk Assessment

    All industry stakeholders have agreed to a managed mycotoxin protocol for harvest 2011 the details of which are as follows.

    At the commencement of harvest, all wheat deliveries must be accompanied with a DON test figure and a Risk Assessment score, both clearly stated on the Grain Passport accompanying the load. This requirement will apply during the initial mycotoxin monitoring period until the industry has reviewed sufficient data on mycotoxin levels.

    The supply of risk assessment scores is important as they are used to aid the correlation against actual DON test figures, and persistent failure to provide risk assessment scores may result in rejection of the load.

    Once the initial monitoring period (the exact length of which will be determined by nabim and the wider stakeholder group) is complete, we will review our protocol in the light of the mycotoxin risk prevailing and the decisions of the industry mycotoxin stakeholder group.
