—Music influences the growth of plants and can either promote or restrict the growth of plants (depending on the type of music being played. [...] Key Method The plants were divided into five groups and each group was subjected to one of the following types of music, Indian Classical music, Vedic chants, Western Classical music, and Rock music while one group was kept in silence as the control group.Expand

STUDIES REGARDING THE INFLUENCE OF MUSIC ON THE WHEAT PLANTS GROWTH
The positive effect of music not only on humans, but also on animals and plants is well known for a long time, being used in music therapy. Studies have shown that a harmonious musical concertExpand
Effects of Different Types of Music on the Germination and Seedling Growth of Alfalfa and Lettuce Plants
TLDR
Lettuce seedlings grown in Gregorian chant, new-age, and waltz music produced both significantly longer radicles and hypocotyls, and are suitable to be used as an alternative method to improve seedling growth and development. Expand
“Emperical study for effect of music on plant growth”
In the recent years music therapy is becoming popular even though it is known from ages that music has an impact on our physical and physiological conditions. Soothing and rhythmic music has anExpand
Effect of Different Sound Genres on In Vitro Seed Germination of Grammatophyllum Hybrid and Grammatophyllum Stapeliiflorum Orchids
TLDR
It was found that music exposure had a positive effect on the seeds’ germination as compared to the untreated control group and showed that different species of orchids need a different type of music to influence the rate of its germination and growth. Expand
COMPARISON OF THE EFFECT OF MORNING AND EVENING INDIAN CLASSICAL RAGAS ON THE PHYSICAL PARAMETERS OF SELECTED MEDICINAL PLANTS. A MODERN APPROACH TO ANCIENT WISDOM- IMPACT OF SONIC NOTES AT ASSIGNED TIMES ON THE MEDICINAL VALUE OF SELECTED PLANTS
Indian Classical music has proven to influence plant growth positively. Indian classical music is seen to score over western classical, rock, country music and monotonous sounds. Objective of thisExpand
The effect of Buddhist pirith chanting and Western pop music on growth performance of “Pranajeewa”, Codariocalyx motorius (Houtt.) H. Ohashi
Response of Codariocalyx motorius to Western pop music and Pirith chanting was examined by conducting an experiment with three months old C. motorius saplings, kept in a sound proof confined chamber.Expand
Effect of types of sound ( music and noise ) and varying frequency on growth of guar or cluster bean ( cyamopsis tetragonoloba ) seed germination and growth of plants
This project is an attempt to show how the rate of growth plant species was affected by sounds of varying frequencies and types of different sound (music). The common guar or cluster bean. CyamopsisExpand
Effect of Sound on the Growth of Plant: Plants Pick Up the Vibrations
TLDR
It was seen that the plant exposed to the vedic chants showed the maximum elongation of the shoot which clearly states that subjecting plant to thevidic chants helps the growth of the plant in the significant manner. Expand
Organic crop production: An analysis of impact of shivyogmodality of agriculture on growth and yield of crops
A systematic research with scientific framework is essential to establish the authenticity of ancient knowledge given by the Sages of Indian tradition. The present study aims to generate scientificExpand
The Enzyme Production Control by Sound Waves in the Case of Koji Mold
TLDR
It is proved that sound waves are one of the important environmental factors influencing the enzyme activities of rice-koji, and the relationship between enzyme activity and frequency of sound waves is confirmed. Expand

The effect of sound on the growth of plants
This project is intended to show how the rate of growth of two different plant species was affected by sounds of varying frequencies. Two plant species, beans and impatiens, were selected because ofExpand
Biochemical and physiological changes in plants as a result of different sonic exposures.
TLDR
The effects of two different sonic exposures on two vegetables at two growth stages, including seedlings and mature plants were investigated, with significant elevations in the level of polyamines (PAs) and increased uptake of oxygen O(2) in comparison with the controls. Expand
Effects of sound field on the growth of Chrysanthemum callus
The effects of sound field on Chrysanthemum callus were studied. The field of alternative stress was generated through a strong sound field system set up in our lab, and the activity of SOD, theExpand
Effect of sound wave on the metabolism of chrysanthemum roots
TLDR
The growth of roots was not inhibited but accelerated under suitable sound stimulation and the content of soluble sugar and protein and the activity of amylase all increased significantly, which indicated that sound stimulation could enhance the metabolism of roots and the growth of chrysanthemum. Expand
Measuring effects of music, noise, and healing energy using a seed germination bioassay.
TLDR
This study suggests that sound vibrations and noise as well as biofields both directly affect living biologic systems, and that a seed germination bioassay has the sensitivity to enable detection of effects caused by various applied energetic conditions. Expand

Rain-, wind-, and touch-induced expression of calmodulin and calmodulin-related genes in Arabidopsis
TLDR
The regulation of thisCalmodulin-related gene family in Arabidopsis suggests that calcium ions and calmodulin are involved in transduction of signals from the environment, enabling plants to sense and respond to environmental changes. Expand
Absorption of acoustic energy by plant leaves
We investigated the vibration of leaves of four plant species in a sound field using a laser‐Doppler‐vibrometer system. All leaves behave as linear mechanical systems when driven by sound and noiseExpand
