Abstract
Fusarium spp. are a continuous threat for cereal crops. Not only do they cause direct damage because of a decrease in yield (from 10 up to 80 %), but they often contaminate the yield product with mycotoxins such as deoxynivalenol (DON) and zearalenone (ZEA). This can result in a lower market value and/or lower the processability of the yield. Especially F. graminearum, F. culmorum, F. avenaceum, F. poae en Microdochium nivale cause problems in Northwest Europe. Field trials of winter wheat in Flanders (in cooperation with the Flanders LCG Trial Network) were followed up during growing seasons 2001-2002, 2002-2003 and 2003-2004. The production of mycotoxins and the occurrence of the different Fusarium spp. were determined. From these results, it can be concluded that there were differences in varieties concerning susceptibility for DON. Differences between the locations were found for Fusarium spp.: areas where particularly cereal crops were cultivated, showed more F. culmorum, whereas areas where maize is the main crop showed principally F. graminearum. A difference was made between cereal crops and maize because the problems caused by Fusarium spp. are different in cereal crops and maize. These results show that Fusarium and mycotoxins are indeed a problem and that there is need for prevention and observation.
