Screening of sorghum genotypes for resistance to Striga hermonthica and S. asiatica and compatibility with Fusarium oxysporum f.sp. strigae
ABSTRACT In the semi-arid areas of Tanzania, yield losses of sorghum [Sorghum biocolor (L.) Moench] due to Striga hermonthica (Sh) and S. asiatica (Sa) infestations are estimated to be 30–90%. TheExpand

Combining ability of yield and yield components among Fusarium oxysporum f.sp. strigae-compatible and Striga-resistant sorghum genotypes
ABSTRACT Use of sorghum [Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench] cultivars with partial resistance to Striga spp. and Fusarium oxysporum f.sp. strigae (FOS) represents a novel strategy to control Striga. ThisExpand
Integrated management of Striga hermonthica and S. asiatica in sorghum: a review.
Potential yield of sorghum [Sorghum biocolor (L.) Moench] in the semi-arid agro-ecologies of East Africa is curtailed by several biotic, abiotic and socio-economic constraints. Striga is one of theExpand
