This is an initiative of the International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics (ICRISAT) to disseminate information about aflatoxin research worldwide. In the first phase of construction of this web-page we attempt to cover several aspects of research, focusing mainly on groundnut; but this may be extended later to other crops. This site will describe the aflatoxin problem, and plant pathology, breeding, agronomy, and biotechnology research to solve the problem. We are also providing a literature search facility aimed to assist aflatoxin researchers.The site will be expanded with the addition of several publications and other ICRISAT documents on this topic.
