    An interlaboratory study was performed for the determination of phomopsin A in lupin seeds and lupin derived products. This was done in the frame of the 2nd Standardization Mandate (M/520) in the field of methods of analysis for mycotoxins in food, which had been issued by the European Commission in the framework of the Regulation EC 882/2004. The study was organized and carried out in accordance with collaborative study guidelines of AOAC. Test materials (seeds, flour, bakery product) were prepared by addition of naturally contaminated lupin seeds.

    ergot alkaloids - claviceps purpurea - ergot - mycotoxins - ring test - ergotalkaloïden - claviceps purpurea - moederkoren - mycotoxinen - ringtest
    Ergot alkaloids are recognised as seriously toxic compounds, which caused a series of outbreaks in the past. In the EU, enforcement is implemented by visual detection and quantification of ergot sclerotia produced by moulds of the genus Claviceps. On behalf of the IAG section Feedstuff Microscopy, RIKILT organised a ring test for the visual detection of ergot sclerotia in two unground rye samples in September 2015. In this report the results from the ring test for ergot in rye 2015 are presented. The ring test ergot sclerotia in rye was designed to test the capability to visually detect sclerotia or parts thereof at relatively high levels. One sample was based on a level of approx. 400 ppm, and the second sample contained an amount of approx. 1000 ppm (EU legal limit for feeds and ingredients: 1000 ppm = 1 gram/kg = 0.1%). An amount of approx. 250 grams of rye grains was chosen as sample size. All samples were individually spiked. Thirty participants enrolled for the ring test. Participants were requested to report the number of recovered (fragments of) sclerotia and the total weight per sample. The percentage of recovery for every sample was calculated. A dedicated IAG method as well as other (lab internal) methods were allowed for application. Principally, methods are based on sieving (preferably with a mesh size of 0.5 mm), examination of every particle (grain) in the fraction with full grains or particles larger than 0.5 mm, selection of sclerotia fragments supported by documentation, and weighing the final selection of bodies. The average recovery for both samples was approx. 97%. All results except one were between the expected recovery limits (80 – 110 % w/w). Supporting data from an intralaboratory validation study of the IAG method showed trueness at different low spike levels between 98 and 105% w/w. Limit of detection was established at 7 ppm. It can be concluded that examination by visual detection of sclerotia is a valuable indicator of the expected presence of ergot alkaloids. The results of this study provides the data for a partial validation of the method of IAG for the examination of whole kernel cereal samples.

    Keywords: informal seed systems, seed recycling, seed quality, germination, seed pathology, seed health, seed-borne diseases, mycotoxigenic fungi, Fusarium verticillioides, mycotoxins, Vigna unguiculata, Zea mays, Nigeria.

    Seed is a crucial input for agricultural production. Approximately 80% of the smallholder farmers in Africa depend for their seed on the informal seed system, consisting of farmers involved in selection, production and dissemination of seed. The lack of overhead, distribution and seed testing costs enables seed-producing farmers to offer seed for low prices, but seed quality is not always good. Seed-producing farmers multiply their seed on-farm without frequent seed renewal, referred to as seed recycling, which may lead to low seed quality. This research analysed the effect of seed recycling on physiological quality and seed health of cowpea and maize, and compared seed quality of the formal and informal seed system.

    We tested the physical and physiological quality of cowpea seeds produced by the formal and informal seed system. Five out of six foundation seed samples, 79 out of 81 samples of farmers’ seed, and six out of six seed company samples failed to meet standards for foundation and certified seeds of the National Agriculture Seed Council (NASC), the seed industry regulatory agency in Nigeria. No evidence was found for a negative effect of seed recycling on physiological quality of cowpea seeds. We analysed 45,500 cowpea seeds for seed-borne bacteria and fungi to compare the performance of formal and informal seed systems. All samples were heavily infected with seed-borne pathogens, including Fusarium oxysporum (69% of the samples) and Macrophomina phaseolina (76%). No evidence was found that seed recycling in the informal seed system did lead to increased levels of seed-borne pathogens. We also analysed seed quality of farmer-produced maize seed to compare it with the formal seed system. The seed company samples had significantly higher germination (99.3%) than farmer-produced seed (97.7%), but not a single sample passed the requirements for certified seed of the NASC. Twelve seed-borne pathogens were identified including Bipolaris maydis (found in 45% of the farmer-produced samples), Botryodiplodia theobromae (97%) and Fusarium verticillioides (100%). Seed recycling had no negative effect on the physiological quality or seed health of maize seed. We analysed formal and informal seed systems to assess the opportunities to prevent mycotoxigenic fungi infection in maize seeds. A range of control methods to avoid fungal infection and mycotoxin production is discussed in relation to three criteria for sustainable implementation in developing countries. An integrated approach is recommended, with special attention towards the local seed system. As an overall conclusion of the work it can be stated that the informal seed system did not underperform compared to the formal seed system for cowpea, but did underperform in relation to seed company samples of maize. There was no evidence that seed recycling reduces seed quality of cowpea and maize seed samples, so frequent seed renewal will not improve seed quality of the informal seed system. We recommend a new quality assurance system for the informal seed system based on seed quality testing by farmers themselves, without interference by government or external laboratories. Farmers publish their seed testing results on the bag, while buyers can retest the seed to verify the quality. Further research is required to develop and implement this system in different countries, agro-ecologies and crops, and to develop methods that enable farmers to test seed health quality themselves.

    In dit rapport wordt de monsternameproblematiek toegespitst op de analyse van mycotoxines en dioxinen in diervoedergrondstoffen. Eerst wordt in hoofdstuk 2 de Europese regelgeving betreffende monstername van diervoeders uiteengezet. In hoofdstuk 3 wordt de homogeniteit gedefinieerd en in hoofdstuk 4 wordt ingegaan op de onzekerheid in het eindresultaat. In hoofdstuk 5 worden relevante parameters voor beperking van de monsternameonzekerheid geïdentificeerd en worden methodes ter bepaling van de monsternameonzekerheid bediscussieerd. Op basis hiervan worden in hoofdstuk 6 conclusies getrokken en aanbevelingen gedaan voor vervolgonderzoek en een praktisch toepasbare strategie voor de controle van diervoedergrondstoffen op mycotoxines en dioxinen die moet leiden tot een betere interpretatie van analyseresultaten.

    Fusariumschimmels veroorzaken in zomertarwe een slechte opkomst van zaaizaad en verlies aan opbrengst. Ook produceren ze mycotoxinen in de korrels. Vooral de mycotoxinen zijn met het oog op voedselveiligheid en diergezondheid een toenemende bron van zorg. Het is dus echt een ketenprobleem. Alle reden om de ziekte beheersbaar te maken. Er zijn diverse aanknopingspunten en ontwikkelingen.

    Fusarium-aarziekte of kalfjesrood is vanwege de opbrengstderving een probleem in granen. Feitelijk wordt Fusarium-aarziekte veroorzaakt door een complex van schimmels dat in steeds andere samenstelling het gewas belaagt. Van recenter datum is de zorg over het vermogen van verschillende Fusariumsoorten om mycotoxinen te produceren. Deze secundaire metabolieten vormen reeds in geringe hoeveelheden een bedreiging voor de gezondheid van mens en dier. De Europese Commissie heeft daarom actielimieten vastgesteld voor een aantal mycotoxinen, terwij; voor enkele andere deze regels aanstaande zijn (Verordening (EG) nr. 1881/2006; Verordening (EG) nr. 1126/2007). Vanwege de steeds strengere normen voor diverse mycotoxinen in voedsel en voer zijn bji ongunstige teeltcondities partijen niet vermarktbaar en kan een tekort aan het te verwerken graanproduct ontstaan
