Parasitic weeds of the households Cuscutaceae, Orobanchaceae and Scrophulariaceae are thought of to be one of the significant difficulties dealing with agriculture within the Tropics and Subtropics. within the final a long time, huge, immense efforts were made and good fortune accomplished by means of scientists around the world in gaining a greater figuring out in their biology and ecology in addition to of regulate equipment. although, no significant aid of infestation has been completed some time past and keep watch over options particular to the various parasites, vegetation and farming structures needs to be additional built or tailored and realised between a much broader farming inhabitants with compatible extension tools. This `Technical guide' offers updated methodologies for varied facets of analysis and extension on the topic of parasitic weed species of the genera Striga, Alectra, Orobanche and Cuscuta. It has the purpose to aid scientists and extension employees of overseas and nationwide study and extension institutes and universities, who're both new to the topic or plan to use additional ideas they don't seem to be but favourite with.
