In this chapter, we review the status of biological weed control in southern Africa, highlighting some unique features and addressing key issues such as the value of biological control in integrated weed management (IWM) and the prospects for its further development and exploitation in the region.

Thompson and some of the staff of the Farnham House Laboratory went to Canada to continue their work in 1940 and, after the war, the service became the Commonwealth Institute of Biological Control (CIBC). Work in developing countries was expanded and an East African Station opened in 1962 in Uganda and a West African Substation in Ghana in 1969 (Greathead, 1994). The purpose of these was to assist African countries and to find natural enemies for export to other regions. In francophone West Africa, Madagascar and Réunion biological control programmes started to be undertaken by staff of l’Institut de Recherches Agronomiques Tropicales (IRAT) and l’Office du Départment de Recherche Scientifique d’Outre-Mer (ORSTOM) (Jourdheuil, 1986).
