In the present study, Interaction of different doses of SAR (pH 3.0, 4.0 and 5.0) with different inoculum levels of A. tritici showed varied responses on wheat plant. Both SAR and A. tritici interacted antagonistically. The wheat plants inoculated with lower inoculum levels (2,500, and 5,000) and exposed with lower acidity level (5.0) were not affected in terms of plant growth, yield, photosynthetic pigments, seed carbohydrate, seed protein and leaf epidermal characteristics compared to
