any plants that thrive where they are unwanted. They clog waterways,destroy wildlife habitats, and impede farming. Their spread eliminates grazing areas and accountsfor one third of crop loss; they compete for sunlight, nutrients, and water with useful plants. Theglobal need for weed control has been answered mainly by the chemical industry. Its herbicides areelective and sometimes necessary, but some pose serious problems, particularly, if misused. Toxiccompounds threaten animal and public health when they accumulate in food plants, ground water and drinking water. They also harm workers who apply them. In recent years, the chemical industryhas introduced several herbicides that are more ecologically sound. Yet new chemicals alone cannot
solve the world’s weed problems. Hence scientists are exploring the innate weed killing powers of
