Tobacco (Nicotiana tabaccum) Infection by Branched Broomrape (Orobanche ramosa) as Influenced by Irrigation System and Fertilization, under East Mediterranean Conditions

A. Karkanis, D. Bilalis and A. Efthimiadou

Abstract:
In field trials conducted in central Greece during two growing seasons, effects of irrigation system and fertilization on the host-parasite association tobacco-Orobanche ramosa were quantified. The experiment was designed as split plot design with four replicates, two main plots (drip and sprinkler irrigation) and three sub-plots (vetch as green manure, red clover as green manure and control (without fertilization)). Drip irrigation was the only treatment that significantly reduced broomrape infestation throughout the growing season. Also, drip irrigation reduced Orobanche dry weight by 70-76%. Finally, the use of drip irrigation system appears to be a promising cultural practice in the management of Orobanche ramosa in tobacco.
