Two phytotoxic compounds, 3-methoxybenzoic acid (MBA) and 3-hydroxy benzoic acid methyl ester (HBAME), were purified and structurally characterized by instrumental analyses from a culture of a phytopathogenic fungus, Bipolaris sorokiniana. During the isolation procedure, the toxic components were monitored by the assay using rice (Echinochloa crusgalli) and Italian ryegrass (Lolium multiflorum). These compounds had a molecular formula of $C_8H_8O_3$ and inhibited the root growth of the plant seedlings over 90% at a level of 1000 ppm. This is the first report of herbicidal activity of MBA and HBAME purified from B. sorokiniana.
