D1: seedlings inoculated with the D1 strain of D. antarctica.
D2: seedlings inoculated with the D2 strain of D. antarctica.
DRC: diameter at root collar.
The values correspond to the mean of n = 60 seedlings per treatment.
Values with different letters in the column differ significantly from one another (Tukey-HSD test p ≤ 0.05).
