Bacterial contamination (%) Fungal contamination (%) Death rate (%) Survival rate (%)
Method 1 39.8 ± 1.9b 62.9 ± 2.9a 100.0a 0.0d
Method 2 0.0c 6.2 ± 2.1b 60.4 ± 2.1c 35.4 ± 2.1b
Method 3 91.7 ± 0.0a 10.4 ± 2.1b 100.0a 0.0d
Method 4 0.0c 10.4 ± 2.1b 27.1 ± 2.1d 56.2 ± 2.1a
Method 5 81.2 ± 2.1a 10.4 ± 2.1b 93.7 ± 2.1b 6.2 ± 2.1c

The data represent the mean ± SE of replicates (n = 3). Values in the same rows carrying different letters are significantly different between treatments and compared by Duncan's multiple range tests at p ≤ 0.05.
