A field experiment was carried out with selected crop on a naturally Orobanche infested soil to test the potential of this crop in Orobanche seed bank exhaustion preciding tomato field at Melkassa Agricultural Research Center, Merti Upper Awash Agro-Industrial Enterprise and Ziway Horticulture Development Enterprise in 2002 and 2003. In the third season all plots were planted with tomato host plant to see the cumulative effect of trap crops to deplete soil seed bank of O. ramosa and O. cernua… Expand

The potential of foxtail millet as a trap crop for sunflower broomrape
TLDR
It is suggested that efficacious cultivars of foxtail millet reduce SB parasitism and increase sunflower yields and that using foxtailed millet as trap crop is probably an effective way to reduce the broomrape weed problem in China, especially in the dry, infertile, and sandy soils of the Loess Plateau. Expand
Using the possibilities of some trap, catch and Brassicaceaen crops for controlling crenate broomrape a problem in lentil fields
TLDR
It is concluded that growing flax as a trap plant or lentil as a catch crop two months before the sowing of lentils as a crop is can be a main element of integrated broomrape managament, which cause to reduce the soil seed bank of crenata broomrape. Expand
Management of orobanche in field crops- a review
TLDR
This review will discuss and summarize alternative methods viz preventive, physical, chemical, agronomic, biological, crop resistance and integrated methods which are needed to manage this parasite. Expand
Integrated Agronomic Management of Parasitic Weed Seed Banks
The vast production of minute seeds, the extremely high seed dispersal potential and the selective germination and extended longevity of the individual seeds represent major difficulties in managingExpand
Mitigate Phelipanche aegyptiaca Pers. infestation considering natural environment conservation.
TLDR
The most significant reduction in broomrape shoot and capsule number was demonstrated in those pots that contained cotton and sorghum, and in those that contained tomato; tomato dry weight significantly augmented. Expand
Effects of some cereal root exudates on germination of broomrapes ( Orobanche spp . and Phelipanche spp . )
Received 01 April 2018 Received in revised form 21 May 2019 Accepted 23 May 2019 Species of broomrape (Orobanche spp. and Phelipanche spp.) are among the most damaging parasitic weed speciesExpand
Management of orobanche in field crops- a review
TLDR
Alternative methods viz preventive measures, physical, chemical, agronomic, biological, biotechnological and integrated methods which are needed to manage this parasitic weed are discussed and summarized. Expand
Assessing the Performance of Maize (Zea mays L.) as Trap Crops for the Management of Sunflower Broomrape (Orobanche cumana Wallr.)
TLDR
It is suggested that maize rotation could be included in the integrated management of sunflower broomrape and confirmed that maize was significantly effective in reducing the sunflower damage caused by sunflowers broomrape. Expand
Biology and control measures of Orobanche
TLDR
In spite of continuous and extensive research by the scientists, no single method for effective and economical management of Orobanche is available and integration of cultural, preventive and chemical methods is required in spite of its costly inputs. Expand
Fenugreek root exudates show species‐specific stimulation of Orobanche seed germination
TLDR
Fractionation patterns obtained from column and thin layer chromatography of the fenugreek root exudate showed a set of metabolites differing in their polarity with stimulatory activity on Orobanche seed germination. Expand
