Abstract

The influence of a stationary magnetic field with induction of 0,15 Т at expositions 10 min, 20 min и 30 min, on tobacco seeds (Nicotiana tabacum L.), cv. Harmanly 11 has been investigated. The germination energy GE and the germination G have been determined with the aim of establishing the effect of the magnetic field on seed vitality. It has been found out that the magnetic field stimulates the development of the germ and leads to increasing the germination energy and germination. A hypothesis about the explanation of the results obtained has been proposed, especially about the stimulating effect of the magnetic field treatment.
