Ohio Grain Elevators See High Vomitoxin Levels
One central Ohio grain elevator estimates 10% of corn being rejected this season
High vomitoxin levels are leading to the rejection of some corn at grain elevators this year, reports Ohio's Country Journal.
Vomitoxin detected in corn so far is enough that at some elevators, trucks are not permitted to leave scales until a vomitoxin quick test is completed.
One central Ohio elevator has been rejecting corn at 5 parts per million (ppm), with estimates of 10% of corn being rejected this season.
The average level of vomitoxin in corn passing through central Ohio elevators is estimated at 2 ppm.
