Abstract

The growth response of five inbred maize lines with high and low DIMBOA content were compared in the presence of 3 and 12 ppm atrazine. A growth-promoting effect of atrazine on roots, mesocotyls and coleoptiles was observed in dark-grown seedlings of the low DIMBOA concentration lines, whereas virtually no effect could be detected in high DIMBOA concentration lines.
