In all parasitic plants, the haustorium
is the organ which makes physical and physiological bridge between the parasite and the host plant .
This latter parasite also penetrates the host with a long haustorium
and shares the undivided stalk cell of the appendage, but differs from L.
initiation by the root macerate was significantly reduced.
brasilense were the most suppressive to haustorium
initiation on both sorghum cultivars (Fig 3 and 4).

IAA suppresses haustorium
initiation, while cytokinines induce haustorium
initiation and shoot development .
development in the parasitic plant
Germination, radicle elongation, haustorium
initiation, attachment and penetration are the earliest developmental stages of Striga.
Cotyledon The first leaf, consisting of haustorium
, middle part, and cotyledonary sheath.
