Abstract

Two short topics were presented in the lecture titled Some Highlights of an Agro Career presented at the Fall Meeting Swiss Chemical Society, September 10th, 2021. The first of these topics discussed the discovery of the selective corn herbicide Bicyclopyrone. The second topic presented was concerned with host marking pheromones (HMPs), and described the HMP of the Mexican fruit fly anastrepha ludens, and its use in crop protection. The story concerning the host marking pheromones of the Mexican fruit fly has already been published in this journal[1] and thus this review will describe the discovery of Bicyclopyrone.
