Table 4 The suppression activity of Janthinobaterium against Rhizoctonia solani AG8 in greenhouse assay

From: Rhizosphere community selection reveals bacteria associated with reduced root disease

Treatment Wheat root fresh weight (g) Wheat shoot fresh weight (g) Wheat shoot length (cm)
− AG8 − Janthinobacterium 251.83 ± 13.54 a 715.43 ± 39.27 a 20.95 ± 0.46 a
− AG8 + seed treated with Janthinobacterium 272.92 ± 25.69 a 837.40 ± 29.3 a 20.82 ± 0.45 a
+ AG8 only 145.42 ± 10.79 c 439.92 ± 38.38 b 16.08 ± 0.32 b
+ AG8 + seed treated with Janthinobacterium 197.48 ± 12.65 b 596.75 ± 47.48 ab 17.04 ± 0.32 b
  1. “+”: with, “−”: without. The values are means ± standard error of six replicates. The experiments were repeated three times with similar results (Additional file: Table S3). Different letters indicate significant differences (p ≤ 0.05, Tukey’s test)
