We who pursue careers in plant pathology do so for many reasons. A common theme is the desire to make a positive difference in the world. In considering the "puzzle" of how our work as plant pathologists relates to global challenges, I found that working on aflatoxin is one solution that ties important global issues to plant pathology.
Nationally, we have a lot of internship opportunities. However, we are not reaching enough talented black undergraduate students with this pathway to a career in plant pathology. Can we, as a profession and a society, find a more effective way to reveal both careers in plant pathology and an impressive suite of internship programs to these undergraduate students?

This article covers take-all disease of wheat, a disease that serves as a model for one type of suppressive soil. Take-all disease of wheat is likely the best-known example of a situation in which a soil containing a pathogen causes damage for a short period of time but loses pathogenicity after consistent monocropping. This loss of pathogenicity is referred to as "take-all decline," and this remarkable event is the rest of the story.
