The effect of sound on the growth of plants

  title={The effect of sound on the growth of plants},
  author={Mary E. Collins and John E. K. Foreman},
  journal={Canadian Acoustics},
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 of their relatively fast growing rates. Ambient conditions were regulated by environmental chambers in which the plants were housed. One chamber was used as a control for the plants, and the plants in the other chambers were subjected to sounds of different frequencies at roughly the same sound…

Update on the Effects of Sound Wave on Plants

The relationship between sound waves and plant growth response is summarized and various plant biological indices including seed germination, root elongation, plant height, callus growth, cell cycling, signaling transduction systems, enzymatic and hormonal activities, and gene expression are summarized.

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. Cyamopsis

Effect of Different Types of Music on Rosa Chinensis Plants

It was seen that the plants exposed to Vedic chants showed the maximum elongation of shoot, maximum number of flowers and highest diameter of flowers, which clearly shows that the subjecting the plants to Indian classical music promotes the growth of plants as compared to the control group or subjecting them to Western classical or Rock music.

Insight into the Effect of Types of Sound on Growth , Oil and Leaf Pigments of Salvia Officinalis , L Plants

This study in an attempt to show how the rate of growth, oil% and leaf pigments of Salvia officinalis L plants was affected by types of different music. Plants were exposed to classical music, Jazz

Plants detect and respond to sounds

Specific sound patterns can affect plant development. Plants are responsive to environmental stimuli such as sound. However, little is known about their sensory apparatus, mechanisms, and signaling

Plant acoustics: in the search of a sound mechanism for sound signaling in plants.

A signaling model is proposed to account for the molecular episodes that SVs induce within the cell, and in so doing a number of interesting questions that need to be addressed by future research in plant acoustics are uncovered.

The Effect of Harmonic Frequency and Sound Intensity on the Opening of Stomata , Growth and Yield of Soybean ( Glycine max ( L . ) Merrill )

Seventy percent of Indonesia’s soybean demands and consumption are met from imports, and therefore, it is necessary to increase its local production. This study assessed the effects of harmonic

The Pattern of Stomatal Opening through the Exposure of High-Frequency Sound Wave with the Different Duration and Age of Soybeans (Glycine max (L.) Merril)

It is suggested that maintaining stomatal opening at optimum width through the manipulation of high-frequency sound waves will increase the yield of soybean plants.



The effect of two audible sound frequencies on the germination and growth of a spring and winter wheat

The effect of sound at both frequencies significantly stimulated the germination and growth of grains and seedlings of vernalized spring (Marquis) and winter wheats and Rideau wheat grew more vigorously at both sound frequencies.

The effect of four audible sound frequencies on the growth of Marquis spring wheat

Plants pretreated with either 1250 Hz or 12 kHz frequencies did not differ significantly from controls, but the height, number of roots,number of tillers, and fresh and dry weights of the root and shoot systems were significantly larger in plantspretreated with 5  kHz sound, when compared with controls.

Effect of Random Noise on Plant Growth

The effect of random noise on the growth rate of 12 tobacco plants is presented. During a two‐week period of exposure, the average growth rate of the plants decreased by 40.6%.
