Susan M. Boyetchko, Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada , Canada

Chapter synopsis: Biological control of weeds by fungal pathogens, bacteria and viruses has been studied for more than three decades. The aim is to suppress or reduce the weed population below an ecological or economic threshold. This chapter describes the role of biopesticides in weed control, historical accomplishments in biological weed control and recently registered pathogens. The chapter then discusses new discoveries currently under development, target weed control and the role of screening and fermentation technologies, as well as looks ahead to future developments in this area.
