Figure 1. Potential witchweed control strategies proposed
by researchers. Farmers would easily adopt measures 1 and 2, whereas
measures 11-12 are very unlikely to be adopted by farmers in the millet-based
systems in the resource-limited drylands of the Sahel or not yet ready
for widespread dissemination. Using at least two control measures carefully
applied by farmers who understand witchweed’s biology will likely
give effective management.
