In order to offer hints for new research, the agronomic techniques used to manage Orobanche crenata in Sicily in the late 19(th) and early 20(th) Century are examined; the publications in which they were originally described can be obtained only with difficulty. Hand pulling, resistant cultivars and late sowing are the techniques used nowadays. Screening for resistance to broomrape of the traditional cultivars of broad bean, and for the influence of sowing density on broomrape infestations, is still to be done.
