How do the parasitic weeds Striga and Orobanche influence host carbon relations?

How do the parasitic weeds Striga and Orobanche influence host carbon relations?

Aspects of Applied Biology ( 42): 63-70

The parasitic weeds Striga (a chlorophyllous hemiparasite) and Orobanche (an achlorophyllous holoparasite) reduce dry matter accumulation by their hosts, compared to uninfected plants, and also affect host allometry, depressing the shoot:ratio. Effects on allometry may be seen before any overall reduction in biomass.
