The deathly command of Korean Mint
KIT has achieved first successes in the search for bioherbicides
The high yields of our industrial agriculture are only possible through the massive use of herbicides. If farmers did not use chemical weed control to keep the weeds away from our crops, they would face crop losses of up to 50%. This is why farmers' organisations are so strongly opposed to the ban on such controversial weed killers as glyphosate. The first results of an EU research project at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology now offer a way out of this dilemma. The aim is to produce completely toxin-free bio-herbicides.
