Abstract

Wild Oats (Avena Spp.) are troublesome weeds in world agriculture. Many reviews have examined this weed complex from the viewpoints of its distribution, biology and methods of control, including several recent publications [1–3]. In 1977 the Shell International Chemical Company conducted a limited survey covering the countries listed in Table 1 to examine the economic importance of this weed complex and found that approximately 2.6 million hectares of cultivated land in those areas were treated with herbicides to control wild-oats in the crops mentioned in the table.
