The Canadian Grain Commission reports a new more aggressive and toxic form of fusarium graminearum is quickly replacing the more familiar form in western Canada.

Studies conducted by the University of Manitoba are finding the 3-A DON chemotype to be much more aggressive than the previous 15-A DON chemotype.

Canadian Grain Commission mycologist Randy Clear says, since 1998 the prevalence of 3-A DON has increased from about five percent of infected wheat crops in western Canada to 40 to 50 percent.
