Table 1 Effect of CF of endophytic fungal strains isolated from the roots of field grown cucumber plants on the growth of Waito-C rice seedlings

From: Endophytic fungal association via gibberellins and indole acetic acid can improve plant growth under abiotic stress: an example of Paecilomyces formosus LHL10

  1. Control (Gf) = rice seedlings treated with the CF of a wild-type strain of Gibberella fujikuroi KCCM12329; Control (DW) = rice seedlings treated with autoclaved distilled water. SPAD = Soil plant analysis development. In each column, treatment means having different letter are significantly (P < 0.05) different as evaluated by DMRT. Values in the table refer to mean ± SD (n = 18).
