Growth of radish (Raphanus sativus) seedlings in magnetic fields

  • M. H. Simmers
Article

Abstract

Radish seedlings were grown in asymmetric magnetic fields. The number of seeds germinated and the dry weight of the plants were the two criteria by which possible effects were examined. Two experiments were done; in the first the plants were grown for an average of 7.7 days and in the second for 14.1 days. A statistical analysis of the results failed to reveal any significant difference between control plants grown in dummy magnets and those subjected to the magnetic influence.

Růst semenáčků ředkvičky (Raphanus sativuc) v magnetickém poli.

Рост сеянцев редиса Raphanus sativus в магнитном поле.

Abstract

Semenáčky ředkvičky byly péstovány v asymetrickém magnetiekém poli. Kritériem možnéhoůčinku byl počet vyklíčených Zrn a suchá váha rostlin. Byly provedeny dva pokusy s různou délkou trvání: první pokus 7.7 dní, druhý 14.1 dní. Statistická analysa ukázala, že neexistuje Významný rozdíl mezi kontrolními rostlinami (rostoucími mezi póly simulovaného ”magnetu“ ze dřeva) a rostlinami pokusnými.

Abstract

Сеянцы редиса выращивались в асиметрическом магнитном Поле. Критерием по которому оценивалось действие поля, являлось число проросших семян и сухой вес растений. Проводились опыты различающиеся длительностью: первый опыт 7,7 доя, второй 14,1 дня Статистичекий анализ показал, что не существует достоверной разницы между контрольными растениями, растущими между полюсами ((магнита)) сделанного из дерева, и между опытными растениями.
