Table 5 Linear mixed model assessing the effects of host and seed type on the percentage leaf area covered by lesions

From: Weeds, as ancillary hosts, pose disproportionate risk for virulent pathogen transfer to crops

Term Estimate SE t P
Intercept 0.658 0.359 1.829 0.067
Host B −0.403 0.063 −6.351 <0.001
Seed type B 0.004 0.066 0.059 0.952

  1. Host = host from which pathogen was isolated; Seed type = either barley (B) or barley grass (BG) seed used for seedling growth onto which inoculations were performed
