Abstract

Buffel grass produces a chemical compound which is toxic to the growth of calotrope seedlings, a declared weed in Western Austrsalia north of the 26th parallel. This new discovery id highly significant in view of the increasing emphasis now placed on weed management as opposed to weed control and the desire to use fewer pesticides.
