Abstract: 

Aim: The treatment of the electromagnetic field is a the physical pretreatments of seed to increase yield of plants. In this paper, the effects of electromagnetic fields on seed germination and growth parameters of Nigella sativa L. were investigated. Materials and Methods: In the study dry and wet seeds are exposed to two electromagnetic fields strength of 1.6 and 0.8 mT for 30 minutes and seed germination were evaluated.3 months after sowing the Growth and development of seedlings was investigated. Results: Dry seeds germination comparing to wet and control seeds had a significant increase. Plant samples of dry pre-treated seeds, showed significant reduction in time to start flowering in both the intensity of the electromagnetic fields, (p<0.001). Plant samples from wet pretreated seeds, arrived late reproductive stage and the delay was significant in both field strength (p<0.05). Root length, shoot length, number of leaves, stomatal density of plants from dry pretreated seeds showed a significant increase. Lateral branches showed a significant increase in wet pretreated seeds. Leaf area in plant samples of both pretreated seeds comparing to control samples showed a significant increase. Conclusions: These studies show that electromagnetic fields can affect seed germination and plant growth and development.
