In order to determine the distribution of mycotoxin contamination in Bavaria, Germany, and to control the quality of feed cereals the three toxins, deoxynivalenol (DON), ochratoxin A (OTA), and zearalenone (ZEA) from 5 different cereals out of 5 districts were analysed. Our investigation demonstrates that all data are near the discussed guide values thus the quality of cereals was not affected seriously in 1999. Calculating the medians for the 5 districts separately it was possible to establish a rough grid revealing a more detailed view on the mycotoxin situation in Bavaria.
