The analysis is based on economic yield of fruits of Ziziphus mauritiana infested by Cuscuta campestris in the season of flower and fruit formation during January-March. The study was done for the two consecutive years 2018 & 2019 in the outskirts of Ayodhya district (especially the Eastern part) of Uttar Pradesh. In this study, a survey was conducted by visual observation of the affected areas as well as by taking the feedback regarding reasons, timing and consequences of this infestation from the affected fruit sellers, owners of fruit trees and other local people. The available data shows that how Cuscuta campestris influences the economics of fruit sellers as well as production of pharmaceutical industries based on them. The study indicates the great potential of this holoparasite which spreads vigorously and infests healthy fresh plants.
