Integration of socio-economically appropriate management strategies for Striga hermonthica in the Gambia

Integration of socio-economically appropriate management strategies for Striga hermonthica in the Gambia

1999 Brighton crop protection conference: weeds Proceedings of an international conference, Brighton, UK, 15-18 November 1999 (Volume 2): 575-576

Striga hermonthica is a major constraint to coarse grain production in the Gambia. Integrated trials were carried out in 1997 and 1998 in 2 contrasting sites to assess the effectiveness of various cultural control methods for reducing infestations and improving crop yields. Long-term effectiveness was a particular concern as reflected in the ability of different strategies to deplete the soil seed bank.
