  1. aAverage of ten plants per replicate. The results are an average of the two seasons of 2012 and 2013
  2. bPercentage reduction in disease severity compared to plants treated with pathogen alone
  3. cMeans within columns sharing a letter in common are not significantly different (P < 0.05; Duncan test). The standard error of each set is displayed
