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 plantsinoculated with lower inoculum levels (2,500, and 5,000) and exposed with lower acidity level (5.0) were not affectedin terms of plant growth, yield, photosynthetic pigments, seed carbohydrate, seed protein and leaf epidermalcharacteristics compared to un-inoculated and un-exposed plant. While, as acidity levels (pH 4.0 and 3.0) wereincreased the suppressions in all above parameters were increased. However, nematodes were killed in all the dosesof SAR.
