Explanation:
You already have the meaning of ASCC in Linda's answer to your previous question (this kind of acronim is often left in English even when writing in Italian); P (I think) stands for "probabilità" - "probability" - which is more usually indicated with P (minuscule), as in:

http://apsjournals.apsnet.org/doi/pdf/10.1094/PDIS.1998.82.1... (tab. 4)

But I've also found "Pr", as in:

http://www.springerlink.com/content/7b9rp6h03ckkm07v/fulltex... (tab 4)

At any rate, it's meant to give a significance level

Correction: in the first link, you'll find an uppercase P (not lowercase, which is what I meant by "minuscule"), but most often in statistics you'll find a lower case "p" for "probability indeed.
Please excuse me!
