Thailand increasingly imports herbicides in each year and is one of the most agricultural chemical importers. In 2012, the Iota! of 106.860.02 tons of herbicides that worth 11,293.85 million bats were imported. The two most imported chemicals arc glyphosatc isopropyl ammonium and paraquat dichloride. As a result of using the herbicides for a long time and continuously, many weed species had become resistant to chemicals. Especially weeds in rice paddies and vine weeds in sugarcane areas in the central and lower part of Northern Thailand. Farmers have to use more chemicals that increase production costs, but not efficient in weeding control. The problem of chemical-resistant weeds is silent threat in many countries. including the ASEAN countries such as Indonesia. This includes wrong use of the herbicide that causes environmental problems and lead to several consequences, such as increasing costs resulting from the ecosystem pollution and ecosystem imbalance, or clanger to the health of users and danger to non-tnrgct plants.
