Feed-additive specialist DELACON has recently established new regional sales administrations across the world. Meeting the need of their strong long-term market growth has driven the Austrian nutritional experts to branch out to the Asia and Pacific area (ASPAC), across Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA).
In 2012 Asia became one of the largest sales regions for DELACON which is no surprise considering the rapid growth of the agricultural market in China and surrounding areas such as Cambodia. The local sales team has expanded the distribution network by appointing additional partners Sze Eng Kian who is Regional Manager North-East Asia, Gina Medina the Regional Manager South-East Asia, and Kevin Wang who becomes General Manager for China.
DELACON has also reorganized and expanded the EMEA sales region managed by Alban Llorca (EMEA regional manager). Bernard Paumelle has been appointed Business Development Manager, responsible for new market entries in the Middle East and Africa, another area where the industry is flourishing thanks to technological advances and education. Annelies Diericx, Area Manager for North-West Europe and Michael Binder, Area Manager for Central Europe are responsible for sales and distributor liaison in their respective areas.
As the largest researcher, producer and distributor of phytogenic feed additives in the world DELACON delivers solutions that improve animal welfare and nutritional efficiency, while reducing environmental impacts of animal production operations. Since 2010 the company has invested heavily in its research and development with a strong ethos in nurturing new talent to sustain its world-wide growth and innovative capital.
High humidity and wet weather in the UK could set a high risk of mycotoxins in cereals this year according to a warning from HGCA reports NFU.
Weather conditions for many regions last season were relatively dry and, in general, mycotoxin levels remained below the legal limits. However, farmers and producers are being encouraged to air on the side of caution of the European legislative limits for the most common mycotoxins in grain intended for human consumption and also for feed.
Extra vigilance will be required by everyone in the grain supply chain according to Senior Research Manager Dr Simon Oxley. He said. “Record-breaking wet conditions during flowering could mean that the risk of mycotoxins is much higher than the past two years.”
He added, “Although using the risk assessment can help growers manage mycotoxin risk, significant risk factors, such as rainfall, cannot be controlled. This season, as mycotoxin risk is potentially high, it is particularly important for growers to ask what their end market requires.”
The total UK rainfall was 145.3mm – twice the average amount and the wettest since records began in 1910, and its sheer volume has been a concern. Talking about its effect Professor Simon Edwards of Harper Adams University College said, “This led to a ‘double whammy’ in terms of potential mycotoxin risk: the rain caused difficulty for some when applying T3 protectant ear sprays and wet humid conditions over the critical flowering period proved ideal for fusarium infection.”
Unfortunately July has also been wet but this recent spell of heat has provided some small hope for farmers across the country. However August is going to be as equally unpredictable according to the Met office with the south likely to see the most of whatever dry and bright weather there is.
