Biological Control of Weeds. by Professor Alan Watson Department of Plant Science. Introduction. Biological control of weeds is the deliberate use of natural enemies to reduce the density of a purticular weed to a tolerable level The objective of biological weed control is not eradication but simply the reduction of the weed population to an economically low level In fact.

The intentional use of insects to control weeds has been in practice for more than years. Historically, species from the orders Lepidoptera and Coleoptera have shown the.

Biological control of pests of crops, fruit trees, ornamentals, and weeds. Title(s): A Review of the biological control attempts against insects and weeds in Canada. This review summarizes the efficacy, advantages and safety of using biological agents to suppress and control damage done to crops by insects.

Biocontrol has been generally shown to be safe to plants, animals, humans and the environment. This is. The cost of developing and conducting a biological control program varies with the target weed and the strategy selected.

On average, a biological control program will cost about $4 million. But every dollar spent in development returns at least $50 in benefit. Biological control of weeds will not eliminate the need to use chemical herbicides. BIOLOGICAL CONTROL OF LANTANA, PRICKLY PEAR, AND HAMAKUA PAMAKANI INHAWAH: A REVIEW AND UPDATE Clifton J.

Biological control of weeds has been practised for over years and Australia has been a leader in this weed management technique.

The classical example of control of prickly pears in Australia by the cactus moth Cactoblastis cactorum, which was imported from the Americas, helped to set the future for biocontrol of weeds in many countries.Biological control of pests, weeds and diseases (pest) is an integral part of a successful Integrated Pest Management plan.

Biological control is the management of a pest through the use of their natural enemies (biological control agent). A biological control agent is an organism such as a virus, insect or plant disease. The Department of Primary Industries and Regional .
