Students FEFU proposed to increase the yield of hydroacoustic waves

Students of the School of Engineering of the Far Eastern Federal University (FEFU) have developed an innovative technology to increase crop yields in agriculture, the university’s press service reported on Friday. Young scientists have experimentally proved that low-frequency sonar waves have a positive effect on the germination of seeds of various crops, which can have a significant effect even in harsh climates.

With reference to the associate professor of the Instrument Engineering Department of the university Albert Gorelikov, it is reported that the technology was based on the low-frequency radiation generator developed by him (60-700 Hz). Initially, the device was created to repel marine mammals from dangerous zones for them, then scientists began to observe the effect of radiation from the device on plants. "Hydroacoustic elastic waves are absolutely safe for plants and future consumers. This method is perfect for growing organic vegetables without using any additives. In our plans - to conduct further research with the Primorsky State Agricultural Academy. We also want to test the generator when growing rice, "the press service quotes the scientist.

FEFU students set up experiments on the seeds of cucumbers, tomatoes and eggplants. With the help of a generator, they were processed by waves with a frequency of 55-60 Hz in a pulsed mode. At the end of the first week, it was possible to determine that to increase the germination rate of cucumber seeds, it is optimal to irradiate 30 with pulses, tomatoes and eggplants - with 60. The results of the three-week tests were noticeable to the naked eye - the experimental plants turned out to be much larger and stronger than those that had not been treated. The research results were presented at the international forum “Agro Far East and Siberia 2017”. Representatives of several agricultural companies in the region are already interested in technology, the report said.
