Ten oat varieties (six hulled: Atego, Flämingsprofi, Neklan, Pogon, Salo, Veli and four naked: Abel, Avenuda, Izak and Saul) were grown on small 2.5 m2 plots in the allotment of University of South Bohemia and Agricultural Research Institute Kroměříž in the Czech Republic. The experiment was carried out during the years 2009-2012. Each variety was tested by quantitative and qualitative assessment, during vegetation and after harvesting. Harvested samples were tested for occurrence of micro fungi and then analysed for the presence of mycotoxins, especially trichothecenes (T-2 and HT-2 toxin, deoxynivalenol, nivalenol and DON-3-glucoside) using ELISA method and HPLC (LC/MS-MS). The purpose of this experiment was to gain information about Fusarium sp. contamination in oat in local growing conditions and to compare the susceptibility of each variety.
