  1. *Each least squares mean represents three observations.
  2. 1Calculated in comparison to the control treatment containing no sequestering agent.
  3. 2The mixture product consisted of minerals, microorganism, and phytogenic substances.
  4. 3Standard error of the means.
  5. a-bValues within a column without a common superscript letter differ (p < 0.05).
