IMPACT OF MAGNETIZED WATER ON GERMINATION ENERGY OF SEEDS AND WEIGHT OF GARDEN SAVORY (SATUREJA HORTENSIS L.), BUCKWHEAT (FAGOPYRUM ESCULENTUM L.), YELLOW LUPINE (LUPINUS LUTEUS L.) AND WINTER RAPE (BRASSICA NAPUS L.) SEEDLINGS

Słowa kluczowe: Magnetized water, seed germination, fresh and dry weight of seedlings

Streszczenie:

The laboratory experiment was carried out in 2008-2009. It consisted of several series of measurements, which were designed to evaluate the effect of magnetized water on seeding value and growth of seedlings and the weight of selected plant species. The results confirmed a diverse reaction of assessed species seeds towards the type of water used. Magnetized water stimulated the seed germination of garden savory and rape, while had no effect on the seeds of yellow lupine. In case of the seeds of buckwheat, this parameter decreased under the influence of magnetized water in the first six days of the experiment. A beneficial effect of bio-stimulation with magnetized water on the rate of growth of the aboveground parts of seedlings was recorded. The positive effect related to all species. The greatest stimulation was observed in buckwheat and garden savory. The use of magnetized water reduced the growth rate of roots at garden savory and buckwheat, while it increased the growth of winter rape roots. It had no effect in yellow lupine. The type of water exerted a significant influence on the fresh weight and roots of seedlings. Regardless of the assessed species, the use of magnetized water resulted in a significant increase in fresh weight and roots by 6% and 9%. No significant influence of the water type on dry matter of seedlings of analysed plant was assessed.
