I've come up with a letter from an engineer on my desk, subject of 
"Plant growth in magnetic fields".  

Privately he has investigated the growth of bean, wheat and cress 
seedlings in electromagnetic fields.  The "strength of his magnetism" 
was 4-5 Gauss, at 9 Hz AC.  It doesn't tell me much, but he
says there were observable differences in growth inside and 
outside his test devices. From a foto, the plants grown i the magnetic
field seemed more elongated.

Anyone else who has heard of such fenomena ?

Any references ?

                     Thanks in advance.
