Striga plant grows especially rapidly during the monsoon along with sorghum (Sorghum vulgare) and pearl millet (Pennisetum typhoides) crops. When striga (Striga asiatica) becomes an adult plant, it preys on the fully mature crops of sorghum and pearl millet. This results in the dying of standing grain crops. To avoid the striga problem, seeds of these crop are treated with turmeric (Curcuma longa) powder before sowing. The crop seeds are thus protected against possible preying by striga.
