Selected Electroculture Research

The science of electro-horticulture is over 200 years old and while there should be tons of research articles available, there aren’t.  As a whole, there are many papers covering the various aspects of electroculture from seed treatments to plant electrophysiology.  In any case, as a convenience to you, below are some selected scientific research studies that may be of interest…

Formal Electroculture Experiments

Influence of electric field on plant weight“, Published in Electrical Insulation and Dielectric Phenomena, 2009. CEIDP ’09. IEEE Conference on

“Effects of Electrical and Electromagnetic Fields on Plants and Related Topics”, Andrew Goldsworthy, Book Chapter (Google Books link)
