Magnets: Farm Tool of the Future
Region:Saskatchewan Chinook
City:Swift Current, SK
School:O.M. Irwin Middle Years School
Abstract:This project is an experiment about the effects of magnetism on seed germination. Magnetized seeds were compared to a control group for germination rate and seedling growth vigour. Magnetized seeds showed a 5% improved germination rate compared to non-magnetized seeds in the control group. The magnetized seeds grew faster, taller and were more developed compared to non-magnetized seeds.
