Vulnerability of agroecosystems to aflatoxin is a major problem worldwide, and in the U.S., represents an economic threat from high costs associated with testing and lost trade when outbreaks occur – events predicted to become increasingly common with climate variability. Our team includes engineers, agronomists, breeders, physiologists, and data scientists, utilizing an integrated systems approach, employing modeling, new sensing technologies, and data mining for assessing risk at vulnerability points.
