【报告内容简介】

    Heavy reliance on herbicides has given rise to concerns about the rapid development of herbicide resistance, nontarget spray drift, and environmental pollution. There is an urgent need for non-chemical innovations to manage weeds and herbicide resistance. The presentation will address current research of using crop’s own natural chemical defense systems against weeds (termed allelopathy). On the other hand, novel chemicals with new modes of actions are needed to combat the ever-evolving herbicide resistance. However, there have been no achievements in commercializing herbicides with new modes of action over the last 25 years. Learning from nature is one way forward in identifying bioactive compounds for weed management. Current study on the herbicidal activities of essential oils obtained from Australian native Eucalyptus will be presented.
