A Study of Interaction between Low Frequency Sound Waves and Germination of Cowpea Seeds (Vigna unguiculata)Author(s): Abhijith P, Ashika P, Bhavya G and Geetha N
This research studied the interactions and effects of low frequency audible sound waves with the germination and growth of pea seeds. Experiments were conducted in 3 aspects, seed germination time, weight gain of seeds and stem elongation. It was identified that the frequency range from 660 Hz to 680 Hz has detrimental effects on germination, weight gain and stem elongation. It was also found that the radiation has direct effects on the production of enzymes in the plant system namely alpha amylase.
