His research focuses on biology and management of parasitic plants using advanced technologies. During the past 20 years, Prof. Eizenberg supervised more than 20 students on topics related to parasitic plants and published more than 50 research papers, reviews and book chapters. In Israel, Prof. Eizenberg recently led multi-regional projects to alleviate broomrape damage in tomato, sunflower and carrot, the results of which are now implemented on a national scale.
