Effect of magnetic field on seed germination and seedling growth of sunflower

Abstract

       The impact of a variable magnetic field, magnetically treated water and a combination of both these factors on the germination of seeds and the final mass at the initial stage of growth sunflower plants was presented. Investigations were carried out in pots filled with sand, tin an air-conditioned plant house with no access to daylight using fluorescent light as illumination.Astatistical significance positive impact was achieved for the samples subjected to the interaction of both stimulating factors simultaneously, the magnetic field and the impact of treated water several times on the speed of seed germination and final plant mass. Negative impactswere obtained for themajority of the test cases, for the magnetically treated water, the short duration of activity of the magnetic field and for the connection of themagnetic field and low-flowtimes.
