Abstract:My project investigated microwaves using plants as an indicator system. I studied seed germination and growth of three plants. I watered different groups with either tap, boiled or microwaved water. After two months in the greenhouse, I measured height, chlorophyll content, fresh and dry weight. My findings were beans and wheat grew significantly better with microwaved water. There was no significant difference for peas.
