  1. UC, plants were inoculated with distilled water only; PC, plants were inoculated with pathogen only; PF, plants were inoculated with pathogen and the chemical fungicide; and PT, plants were inoculated with pathogen and Stenotrophomonas rhizophila FT2. DSI, disease severity index; BE, biocontrol effect. Means followed by the different letters within each column are significantly different at P < 0.05
