Table 5 Effect of phenolic acid treatments on growth parameters of flax plants grown under sandy soil conditions (data are means of two seasons)

From: Comparative studies on the role of benzoic, t-cinnamic, and salicylic acids on growth, some biochemical aspects, and yield of three flax cultivars grown under sandy soil conditions
