Effects of endophyte status on copper stress measured by growth of soybean
Treatments Association Shoot length (cm) Shoot dry weight (g) Root dry weight (g)
Control E- 31.21 ± 0.64 b 6.30 ±0.14 b 1.10 ±0.01 b
E+ 36.17 ± 0.74 a 7.20 ±0.13 a 3.42 ±0.03 a
Copper (100 μM) E- 27.21 ± 0.16 b 6.05 ±0.16 b 1.3 ±0.06 b
E+ 33.25 ± 0.51 a 6.96 ± 0.14 a 3.16 ± 0.08 a

Values in the table refer to mean of 21 plants/treatment while ± shows S.E. Means followed by different letter (s) are significantly different (P < 0.05) between E- and E + as determined by Duncan’s multiple-range test.
