What is the Agent Orange of today?

Anyone heard anything about scary-powerful chemicals/biological warfare/nanotech designed to wipe out not just people, but flora and fauna as well?

I know about Agent Orange or course, but I'm curious about what freaky experimental agents have been recently developed or are in current development, primarily for weaponized use.
(I'm less interested in viruses, unless there's something that's been engineered to wipe out plants and animals as well as people.)
This is for a story idea, but I'd like it to have as much scientific precedent as possible. Thanks!
