The parasitic plant crenate broomrape is the major constraint for dry pea cultivation in the Mediterranean Basin and the Middle East. Scientists Fondevilla et al. identified pea breeding lines showing stable resistance to broomrape and high productivity. These lines will be particularly useful for the sustainable control of broomrape.
