Information is included on a monitoring project conducted in Emilia Romagna, Italy, during 2002-04 to develop a strategy for integrated control of fungi responsible for accumulation of toxins in autumn-winter cereals. Samples taken during the trials were analysed for the presence of deoxynivalenol (DON) [vomitoxin], zearalenone (ZEN) and ochratoxin (OTA). A map is provided of various degrees of risk of cereal (soft and durum wheat, and barley) contamination with DON toxin. A decision support system designated FHB-DSS (Fusarium Head Blight u Decision Support System) was developed to determine the risk degree caused by the presence of mycotoxins. Mathematical models are also included to calculate the degree of risk from mycotoxins based on meteorological data. Application of the decision support system based on risk indexes in development of strategies of Fusarium control is outlined.
