: I recently conducted an experiment entitled A Magnetic Field and the
: Growth of Spinach. My results were that the plants subjected to the
: north pole were smaller than the control. The plants subjected to the
I am surprised at these results. Could you please post some more info on
type of measurements, differences between treatments, and the strength of
: cytokinin while the north field inhibited the production? Is that
: possible? Are my results unique to that of the spinach plant?
Hormone production is modified by electric fields, although I am
surprised that a magnetic field could modify hormonal action.
