  1. *The results are an average of the two trials. Four plantlets were evaluated in each trial for each treatment
  2. **According to Duncan’s multiple comparison test, the difference between the averages indicated by the same letters in the same column is insignificant according to P < 0.05
  3. ***The most virulent isolate, BY5L316, was selected to use in the next stage of the study
