Abstract

In September 2014, a commercial field in western Nebraska was found exhibiting sunflower plants being parasitized by another flowering plant. Its presence was detected in approximately 25% of the field. The parasite was identified as Orobanche ludoviciana, and represents the first known report of any species of Orobanche attacking sunflowers in the Western Hemisphere.
