Grain yield parameters of Sarocladium oryzae and Pseudomonas fuscovaginae infected plants. The main tiller of 7 weeks old Kitaake rice plants was inoculated with S. oryzae or P. fuscovaginae. IBNG0008 is shown in dark blue, RFNG30 in light green and the healthy control, inoculated with a healthy rice grain, in black. P. fuscovaginae wild type strain UPB0736 is shown in red, delta445 in orange and as a healthy control, shown in black, a sterile saline solution was injected. (a) A fully ripened panicle, 6 or 8 weeks after inoculation with respectively S. oryzae and P. fuscovaginae. (b) Boxplots represent the length of the main panicle and (c) stacked bars show the average amount of open, empty and healthy seeds on the main panicle of plants inoculated with S. oryzae. Yield parameters of plants inoculated with P. fuscovaginae are represented by (d) stacked bars showing the proportion of the inoculated tillers forming a panicle and dots represent the length of the main panicle (e) or the amount of seeds produced by the main panicle of each sample (f). The boxplots show the median with the first and third quartile, the whiskers show the minimum and maximum values. Outliers and extreme values are represented by crosses. These data show the results of one experiment with 25 replicates (b-c) or 18 replicates (d-f). Conditions that differ significantly from healthy control plants are represented by asterisks (Mann Whitney or Mood’s Median, n = 18 or n = 25, α = 0.05 (a-c, e-f). Asterisks mark conditions that influence panicle formation significantly (Logistic binary regression, n = 18 (d))
