Effect of Magnetized Water on Germination and Some Growth Characters of Broad Bean (<em>Vicia Faba </em>L.)
Keywords:Broad bean, Chemical constituents, Germination, Magnetized water
A pot experiment was carried out to study the effect of magnetized water on some growth characters of broad bean (Vicia faba L.). The experiment was arranged in completely randomized design (CRD) with four different treatments of magnetized water and tap water as a control. Results indicated a significant increase in plant height, number of leaves, leaf area, fruit length, weight of 100 seeds. The results also showed a significant increase in some elements (K, Ca and Mg). The shoot and root fresh and dry weight and chlorophyll content expressed a significant increase compared to control.
