Abstract

A preliminary test was conducted to study the effects of vibratory waves on seed germination. It was observed that in some cases, when the wave length was the same as the seed mean dimension, the seeds sprouted sooner than a similar control group of seeds under identical environmental conditions. The heights of the plants when sprouted showed a measurable increase for the test seeds (with vibration waves) as compared with control seeds (no vibration).
