A ‘Perspective’ article entitled ‘Are root parasitic broomrapes still a good target for bioherbicide control?’ has been recently published in Pest Management Science, with me as the author.

This paper was presented orally at the workshop ‘Overcoming the barriers to adoption of microbial bioherbicides’ (, which took place in Bari, Italy on 25–29 September 2022, and was sponsored by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) Co-operative Research Programme: Biological Resource Management for Sustainable Agricultural Systems, whose financial support made it possible for the author to participate in the workshop.
