Levels of benzoxazinoid allelochemicals at different growth stages in wheat varieties grown under contrasting climatic and farming conditions

The content of benzoxazinoid allelochemicals has been quantified in foliage and/ or roots of 25 wheat varieties. For six varieties of wheat cultivated under conventional as well as organic farming conditions in North and South Europe the content of benzoxazinoids in foliage as well as roots has been quantified at 5 growth stages and for nineteen varieties cultivated in central Europe the content in roots has been quantified at 3 growth stages. The result provides a unique collection of data concerning variations in natural content of benzoxazinoid allelochemicals in a wide range of different varieties of wheat at different stages of development.
