    2019-03-21 This Technical Note provides an overview of parasitic plants of agricultural significance in Africa. Parasitic weeds cause drought stress and stunted crops. Affected plants include cereal grains (e.g., sorghum [Sorghum bicolor] and maize [Zea mays]) and grain legumes (e.g., cowpea [Vigna...

  3. AccessAgriculture Training Video During weekly visits, and supported by their extension agent, a farmer field school in Tanzania learns how to test different sorghum varieties for striga resistance and evaluate how each one performs under different practices.

  4. AccessAgriculture Training Video To resolve the problems of poor soil fertility and to fight against the striga weed with limited means, some farmers in Niger apply micro-doses to their sorghum and millet crops. Compared to broadcasting, the localised application of micro-doses requires less...
  5. The ‘push-pull’ system is a novel approach in pest management, developed by understanding the complex mechanisms that govern the ecology of plants and insects, which uses carefullyselected repellent intercrops and attractive trap plants. Insect pests are repelled from the food crop and are...
  6. Abstract, Sustainable Agriculture Research, 2018 This paper assesses the climate smart agricultural practices triggered by learning videos on integrated striga management, soil fertility and cost-benefit evaluation practices. Using household head interviews and focus group discussions, this study...
  7. 1998-02-19 A striga resistant sorghum has been developed. In addition the fungus, Fusarium oxysporum, may help control striga.
  8. AccessAgriculture Training Video The parasitic weed striga causes more damage to cereal crops in poor soils, so both problems have to be tackled together. In this video we will learn why it is important to combine at least three control methods to reduce striga and obtain a good yield of sorghum,...

  10. 2018-11-13 Mistletoes (parasitic shrubs from diverse families), dodders (species of Cuscuta); and witchweeds and their relatives, Striga, Alectra, and Rhamphicarpa species are major constraints on African crops especially in grain and legume production. They are highly specialized weeds so understanding...
