Wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) and other cereals produce allelochemicals as natural defense compounds against weeds, fungi, insects and soil-borne diseases. The main benzoxazinoid allelochemical of wheat is 2,4-dihydroxy-7-methoxy-1,4-benzoxazin-3-one (DIMBOA), bound as beta-glucoside and released upon plant injury. When leached from...

Partial host-plant resistance could make a substantial contribution to reducing the damage caused by economically important grain aphids and, therefore, to reduced insecticide use. Naturally occurring hydroxamic acids, in particular 2,4-dihydroxy-7-methoxy-1,4-benzoxazin-3-one (DIMBOA), have been shown to be involved in the...
