We hypothesise that inhalant exposure to mycotoxins causes developmentaloutcomes and certain hormone-related cancers that are associated with grain farming in an epidemiologicalstudy. The aim of the present study was to identify and validate determinants of measured trichothecenemycotoxins in grain dust as work environmental trichothecene exposure indicators. Settled grain dustwas collected in 92 Norwegian farms during seasons of 1999 and 2000. Production characteristics and climaticdata were studied as determinants of trichothecenes in settled dust samples obtained during the productionof barley (N = 59), oats (N = 32), and spring wheat (N = 13). Median concentrations of trichothecenesin grain dust were
