  1. aTwo leaves were sprayed with the liquid culture once a day three times before inoculation on the 4th day. Each leaf was inoculated at five sites, and the disease incidence and lesion diameter were recorded after 3 days.
  2. bSpore suspension mixed with the same amount of extract was incubated at 28°C for 4 h. Data were means of three replicates.
