Using the chemical substances in weed control, diseases and pests, without discernment, has been responsible for environmental damage and human health. For these reasons, in the last years research has intensified its efforts to find alternative agriculture strategies. One of these is represented by the Integrated Weed Management System (IWMS), so that the capacity to combat by natural ways could have a wider and more valuable application. From the multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary point of view approach, some species of agricultural interest are already known for their allelopathic effects and can be used as instruments for weed management, disease and pests. A feasible alternative is represented by the identification of natural substances with allelopathic effects for the production of natural bio pesticides. Research done so far has highlighted the possibility of using volatile / essential oils and hydrosols extracted from medicinal and aromatic plants disproof in controlled environment, such as horticulture (in greenhouses and solariums). The advantage of using such natural compounds is the fast decomposing process in the environment and thus is less harmful and can be applied in organic farming.
