Research in Pictures: Rapid Seedling Growth Using Electricity
(Originally published in November, 2013)
So you may have been wondering, what real scientific research has been going on with respect to electroculture… right? I had the same thoughts when I first set out on this journey, too. In today’s picture post, I’m going to share with you a couple pictures from a research article by Tsutomu Takamura.
Here is a picture of an experiment showing some urad bean (Vigna mungo (L.)) seedlings:
And here is another one with monocot seedlings, Zea Mays:
The image above shows 180 hour-old Zea Mays seedlings. The one on the right is electrified with 3.5 volts. Source: http://goo.gl/ceq7A2
