The Effect of Sound on Plant Grwoth

The effect of continuous sound on the height, growth rate, and percent germination of spring wheat was tested for 3, 5, 7, and 9 kHz at 75 dBA. The wheat was grown in soundproof growth chambers with a 16-hr photoperiod at 170 footcandles. The daytime temperature was 28° C with 78% relative humidity. The nighttime temperature was 24° C with 78% relative humidity. Statistical analysis showed no significant effect of sound on plant height, growth rate, or percent germination. Further experiments with emphasis on sound intensity and temperature interaction are suggested.
