  1. Data are presented as mean of at least six replicates ± standard deviation. Small letters in the same column show statistically significant differences among different PEG-induced drought stress treatments for the same parameter at P ≤ 0.05 based on Tukey’s HSD post hoc test. ***Significant at P ≤ 0.001
