Table 7 Effect of interaction of compost and/or ZnO and nano ZnO different concentrations (0, 20, 40, and 60 mg/l) on yield and yield components of flax plant under sandy soil (data are means of two seasons)

From: Zinc-oxide and nano ZnO oxide effects on growth, some biochemical aspects, yield quantity, and quality of flax (Linum uitatissimum L.) in absence and presence of compost under sandy soil
