Means within a column followed by the same capital letter are not significantly different at 95 percent C.L. using the REGWQ 𝐹 test. Means with an asterisk are significantly different from control at 95 percent C.L. using Dunnett’s test for comparing means with a control. Numbers in parenthesis are standard deviations. Means are average of 3 replications.
