Influence of Ca2+ Cyclotron Resonance-tuned Magnetic Fields on Germination and Growth of Wheat Seedlings

" The application of the AC field tuned to the ICR frequency for Ca 2+ ions (f AC = 16 Hz) did not affect the germination process of wheat seeds but there was an effect on the growth process of the exposed seedlings. The number of emergent seedlings was significantly modified only for B AC = 0.3 mT field (increase of 43%), while the fresh weight of 10-day-old seedlings was increased for both treatments (increase of 85% and 80% for 0.1 mT and 0.3 mT fields, respectively). After the exposure to f AC = 11 Hz field, exposed seeds produced seedlings with significantly decreased fresh weight (decrease of 27% and 38% for 0.1 mT and 0.3 mT fields, respectively). Wheat seeds failed to respond to f AC = 21 Hz fields in any of the seedling emergence parameters measured." {Credits 1}
