  1. Note: Values followed by different small letters in the same column meant significant differences at p < 5%. ANOVA F-value for main and interaction effects were not significant (ns) or significant at ≤5% (*) and ≤ 1% level (**).Under the S3A0 treatment plants all died, So the S3A0 row is empty. Multiple comparison can’t be performed for S3A1 treatment because only 1 plant survived
