Data combined from three tests and six genotypes.

z)Means having a different letter(s) within a column are significantly different according to P < 0.05 level.

y)Visual score was given in a 1-5 scale, where 1-no apparent burn spots; 2-a few burn spots; 3-less than half burn spots; 4-more than half of the leaves showed spots; 5-the whole soybean leaves showed large areas of burn spots and withered.

x)Index of all traits was computed relative to 0X treated values, where the performance of 0X dose was considered as 100 percent.
