Phytotoxic Activity of the 6-acetyl-5-hydroxy-2isopropenyl-2,3-dihydrobenzofurane (1) isolated from Trichocline reptans (Asteraceae) was investigated in two weed species. Results indicate that the best growth inhibition effect ocurres on Chenopodium album weed. Phythotoxic effect of the T. reptans chloroformic extract and of the benzofurane are discussed and compared in the two weed species.
