Table 2 Impact of alleviation treatments on growth parameters of chilling-stressed coriander plants at the vegetative stage. Coriander control plants and chilling-stressed ones were subjected to pot. Silicate (80 mM), HA (50 mgl− 1) or γ-radiation (50 Gy). The shown data was extracted by using 3 biological and 3 technical replicates. Each biological replicate is comprised of 10 plants (one pot). The mean value of each biological replicate represents the value of one technical replicate. The readings of the 3 technical replicates were recorded. The mean value of the technical replicates was used to calculate ±SE. Also, the least significant differences (LSD) at 5% level were calculated to compare the means of different treatments according to Snedecor and Cochran [92]. The values with the same letter are not significantly different (P<0.05). The raw data set of the technical replicates was attached as a supplementary file
