Abstract

A number of parasitic plants have adapted to agricultural environments becoming weedy and posing a serious threat to important crops. Available control measures rely heavily on use of synthetic herbicides. The side effects on environmental pollution and food health of chemical control prompted studies to find alternative strategies based on the use of natural products. This article reviews plant and fungal metabolites with potential for the development of specific and efficient methods for the control of parasitic plants.
