Biological Control of Weeds and Plant Diseases : Advances in Applied Allelopathy by Rice, Elroy L. :: Biological control of diseases and other pests is of paramount concern in agriculture and forestry. The development of satisfactory techniques would enable us to lessen or eliminate many of the uses now made of synthetic chemicals, many of which have caused serious pollution and other undesired side-effects. Unfortunately, the United States Department of Agriculture and other funding agencies have not supplied sufficient leadership and funds to push biological control, although it is clear that various allelopathic techniques offer real promise in solving many of the problems involved in the biological control of weeds and plant diseases. Thus, it was decided that an update of the more active areas of allelopathy is needed more than a new edition on the broad subject of allelopathy. This book is based chiefly on references not used in Rice (1984), although a few were published prior to that book.
