Effects of weak 16 2/3 Hz magnetic fields on growth parameters of young sunflower and wheat seedlings.
Published in: Bioelectromagnetics 2004; 25 (8): 638-641
Aim of study (acc. to author)
To study possible effects of
magnetic fields with low intensity on seedlings growth (sunflower and wheat). Background/further details
sunflower and wheat beakers were placed symmetrically to the center of the
Twelve seeds per experiment (treatment and control) were placed 5 cm below the upper edge of filter paper
germination roll. The rolls were placed in the center of a 250 ml beaker filler with 100 ml tap water. Identical conditions were applied for the control group, placed 3 m from the exposure group, but without magnetic field.
