  1. a. The results are an average of the two trials. Four plantlets were evaluated in each trial for each treatment
  2. b. Percentage reduction in diseases severity compared to plants treated with pathogen alone
  3. c. Means within columns sharing a letter in common are not significantly different (P < 0.05; Duncan’s test). The standard error of each set is displayed
