My watch list  


  DIMBOA, an acronym for the hydroxamic acid 2,4-dihydroxy-7-methoxy-1,4-benzoxazin-3-one, is a naturally occurring compound present in maize. DIMBOA in maize functions as natural defense against European corn borer larvae and many other damaging pests.[1] The exact level of DIMBOA varies between individual plants but higher concentrations are typically found in young seedlings and the concentration decreases as the plant ages.
