  • This study was conducted to evaluate root exudates from sub-Saharan indigenous weed species to induce germination of Strigahermonthica(Del.) Beth., a root parasitic weed.Significant variation in Striga seed germination was observed, ranging from an absence to the induction of 74.1% Striga seeds. Direct comparison of Striga germination was obscured by differences in weed root biomass as within most of the species, a direct proportional relation between Striga seed germination and weed root dry… CONTINUE READING
