Oats grain from South Africa was frequently found to be infested by toxic strains of Fusarium acuminatum, as was one barley sample. All 11 toxic strains tested produced T-2 toxin (0.8 to 2,600 mg/kg), and 6 of 11 strains produced diacetoxyscirpenol (0.6 to 8.4 mg/kg). This is the first record of T-2 toxin-producing Fusarium isolates from Africa and of the production of large amounts of T-2 toxin at relatively high (25 degrees C) temperatures.
