Mycotoxin rainfall risk tool for cereals

Use this map-based tool to calculate rainfall-related mycotoxin risk assessment scores for wheat.

Covering hundreds of sites across England, Scotland and Wales, this map-based tool can show how much rain has fallen during the critical winter wheat flowering and pre-harvest periods. Use this information to help calculate mycotoxin risk assessment scores (required for the combinable crops grain passport).
