Maize silage is a widely used feed product at Danish cattle farms. Unfortunately growth of filamentous fungi is often seen on and in silage. This may result in mycotoxin contamination of the feed, which may harm the animals or result in toxins transferred to foodstuffs consumed by human. In this PhD project (2005 - 2010), the presence of mycotoxins in Danish maize silage are detected and evaluated by cytotoxicity testing: In vitro assays are applied to evaluate the toxicity of pure mycotoxins, extracts of fungi and silage. Mycotoxins in maize and silage will be quantitatively or qualitatively determined with existing and new chemical methods.
