Scholarcy highlights

  • One of the most important factors determining the plant yield is the seed material quality, which determines the emergence course, and density of plants
  • Treating the seeds with magnetic field caused the increase in amylolytic enzymes activity in seeds and seedlings of pea
  • Our studies showed an increase in enzyme activity in pea seeds as an effect of this treatment
  • The activity of amylolitic enzymes increased together with the experiment duration, reaching the highest value after 144 hours from the sowing of seeds. It increased the effect of the stimulation of seeds with MF, wherein a higher dose had a greater effect on this activity than a lower one
  • Treatment of seeds with MF enlarged the content of tested phytohormones in the germinated seeds as well as in the aboveground parts and roots of pea seedlings
  • Seed stimulation affected the growth of the stem and roots of pea seedlings
