Market for Preparations against Fodder Pollution with Mycotoxins in 2005-2009

Period: 2005-2009
Region: Russia
Quotation from the report:

"...Pollution with mycotoxins represents a world-wide problem for the global grain production: according to the results of a research, conducted by Biomin Gmbh, mycotoxins were detected in 75% of 1.5 thousand samples of grain, obtained from all over the world. According to FAO estimates, 25% of harvested grain are infected by mycotoxins; the global annual losses from mycotixin infection make up 1 billion tons (FAO, 4). However, the occurrence of various types of mycotoxins is not the same in different geographic regions, which is defined by the difference in climate and by the selection of crops cultivated. 

Supply of preparations against mycotoxins on the Russian market is formed at the expense of both domestic production and import. The range of domestic and foreign manufacturers is represented by various groups of preparations. 

The predominant components of the Russian preparations are enterosorbents based on the most common mineral substances (activated carbon, lignine), possessing non-selective adsorbing properties, except for LLC “Elest” preparation, known as “Fungistat K”, representing  a complex agent, combining both inhibitor and enterosorbent properties. Apart from mineral substances, a biological agent B. Subtilis is used as an active agent. In addition to this “Fungistat K” contains a number of supplemental active agents, stimulating the immune system and producing a general tonic effect. Among preparations, possessing additional useful properties, there is “Ecofiltrum” (LLC “Leksir”), containing a prebiotic – lactulose – affecting favorably the growth of useful bacterial microflora of intestines, when taken regularly.  

Two main groups can be distinguished in the variety of  the imported preparations: mold growth inhibitors and enterosorbents. Certain mold growth inhibitors produce an additional enterosobent impact at the expense of the  added mineral substances, e.g., A-Tox (manufactured by Cipla Ltd., India) and Mold Curb (manufactured by Kemin Europa N.V., Belgium)..."
