Extract

A campaign to control the weed, Cordia macrostachya (Jacq.) Roem. & Schult. (Boraginaceae) by biological means is in progress in Mauritius (Williams, 1948). This hardy perennial shrub was accidentally introduced from Central America in the last decade of the nineteenth century. It is today a serious pest of nearly all land of agricultural value which is not intensively cultivated (Wiehe, 1946).
