Wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) has been found to possess allelopathic potential and studies have been conduced to apply wheat allelopathy for biological weed control. 2,4-Dihydroxy-(2H)-1,4-benzoxazin-3(4H)-one (DIBOA) is a common product found in wheat, corn, and rye exudates and it can be released to the environment by that way. In this report, the(More)
Avena fatua L. (wild oat) and Lolium rigidum Gaud. (rigid ryegrass) are highly problematic weeds affecting a wide variety of cereal crops worldwide. The fact that both of these weeds have developed resistance to several herbicide groups made them optimal candidates as target organisms for ongoing research about the potential application of allelochemicals(More)
Compounds with a (2H)-1,4-benzoxazin-3(4H)-one skeleton have attracted the attention of phytochemistry researchers since 2,4-dihydroxy-(2H)-1,4-benzoxazin-3(4H)-one (DIBOA) and 2,4-dihydroxy-7-methoxy-(2H)-1,4-benzoxazin-3(4H)-one (DIMBOA) were isolated from plants belonging to the Poaceae family. These compounds exhibit interesting biological properties,(More)
Benzoxazinones 2,4-dihydroxy-7-methoxy-(2H)-1,4-benzoxazin-3(4H)-one (DIMBOA) and 2,4-dihydroxy-(2H)-1,4-benzoxazin-3(4H)-one (DIBOA) have been considered key compounds for understanding allelopathic phenomena in Gramineae crop plants such as corn (Zea mays L.), wheat (Triticum aestivum L.), and rye (Secale cereale L.). The degradation processes in the(More)
Benzoxazinoids have been described as important allelochemicals from Gramineae as well as Acanthaceae, Rannunculaceae, and Scrophulariaceae plants. Several bioactivities have been described and evaluated for these compounds, including fungistatic, antifeedant, and phytotoxic. In ongoing studies about allelochemicals as natural herbicide models, the(More)
The Horizontal Fragmentation (HF) is a process for reducing the number of disk access to execute a query by reducing the number of irrelevant objects accessed. In this paper, we present horizontal fragmentation based on a set of queries, and develop strategies for two versions of HF: primary and derived. Primary horizontal fragmentation of a class is(More)
Horizontal partitioning is a logical database design technique which facilitates efficient execution of queries by reducing the irrelevant objects accessed. Given a set of most frequently executed queries on a class, the horizontal partitioning generates horizontal class fragments (each of which is a subset of object instances of the class), that meet the(More)
Natural products involved in plant-plant and plant-microorganism ecological interaction (Allelochemicals) are an important potential source for alternative agrochemicals and pharmaceuticals, in order to solve the many problems derived from inadequate culture practices and abuse of synthetic herbicides. Isolation, structural determination, bioassay(More)
