Table 3 Fresh weights of shoot and root (g), dry weight of shoot and root (mg) for one plate of 20 seeds treated with sterile water (the control), the wild strains (i.e., endophytic Enterobacter sp. E5 and Kosakonia sp. S1), and their acdS gene surface expressed strain (i.e., the engineered strains E5P and S1P, respectively)
