Enhancing Seed Germination and Plant Growth Using EMF

Germination of plant seed is typically affected by ambient temperature, moisture, pH of soil, lighting conditions and quality of seed. Usually, only a certain percentage of seed successfully germinates and develops into seedlings. It is less known that specific oscillating electromagnetic fields (EMF) also affect germination rate and the growth of seedlings and their later growth into fully grown plants. Effects of electromagnetic fields on the germination of seed, seedling development and later plant growth can be beneficial or detrimental, depending on the nature of EMF and the way they are applied.
