The parasitic weed striga had significantly greater effects on sorghum yield components than non-parasitic weeds. Grain reduction caused by striga amounted to 65% compared with 32% reduction caused by non-parasitic weeds. Comparable reductions were also manifest in straw yield, grains/head and plant height of sorghum. Early removal of striga (a week after its emergence), and thereafter at regular weekly intervals, may help to improve crop yields
