Preliminary surveys of the distribution of Chromolaena odorata in Bangladesh


S.M. Rezaul Karim (2013) Preliminary surveys of the distribution of Chromolaena odorata in Bangladesh. In: Proceedings of the Eighth International Workshop on Biological Control and Management of Chromolaena odorata and other Eupatorieae, 01- 02 November 2010, Nairobi, Kenya.


Chromolaena odorata (L.) R.M. King and H. Robinson (Asteraceae), commonly known as Siam
weed, is a notorious agricultural and environmental weed, and can cause allergenic effects in
humans and health impacts if cattle consume the weed. In preliminary roadside distribution
surveys conducted in Bangladesh in 2009, a vast area of land, especially along roadsides, in fallow
land and horticultural gardens in the districts of Rajshahi, Jessore, Chittagong, Manikganj,
Bandarban, Patuakhali, Faridpur, Mymensingh, Tangail and Dhaka, was infested with C. odorata.
Detailed surveys to determine the entire distribution of C. odorata in the country, a risk
assessment of the weed for inclusion in the list of noxious weeds, as well as detailed studies for
sustainable management of the weed are required.
