Effect of electromagnetic fields on tomato development

Effect of electromagnetic fields on tomato development

Zemes Ukio Inzinerija, Mokslo Darbai 32(1): 43-52

The effect of the exposure of the tomato apical meristem zone to continuous electromagnetic fields of power 1000 A/m (=H), 1800 A/m (=H), 200 A/m (~H), 800 A/m (~H), 1500 A/m (~H) on growth and development of plants was studied in greenhouse experiments. The electromagnetic fields stimulated plant development, but the impact was affected by the tomato growth period. Seedlings developed rapidly, formed the biggest leaf area and grew tallest in an electromagnetic field of power 1500 A/m (~H).
