Vicia faba seedlings, subjected to a 10 microT 50 Hz square wave magnetic field for 40 min together with a radioactive pulse, showed a marked increase in amino acid uptake into intact roots. A more modest increase was observed with a 100 microT 50 Hz square wave. An increase in media conductivity at low field intensities from 10 microT 50 Hz square wave, 100 microT 50 Hz sine wave, and 100 microT 60 Hz square wave fields, indicated an alteration in the movement of ions across the plasma… CONTINUE READING
