The deoxynivalenol (DON), zearalenon (F-2 toxin) and T-2 toxin content of 298 swine and poultry feeds was determined in 2010. Deoxynivalenol and zearalenon contamination of the tested feeds was higher in the second half-year than in the first halfyear. The wheat and corn samples had elevated concentrations of DON and F-2 toxins, presumably due to the rainy weather. In the second half-year fusariotoxicosis occured in several swine and poultry herds. The diagnosis was confirmed by the high DON and F-2 toxin levels in feed.
