Plasma seeds treatment as a promising technique for seed germination improvement [pdf]Paper  abstract   bibtex   
An influence of RF air plasma pre-sowing treatment on seed germination of some important agricultural plants has been studied. Two plasma systems (plan-parallel and cylindrical) were used for treatment of maize, spring wheat and lupinus seeds. It is shown that the treatments contribute to seeds germination enhancement decrease and their phytosanitary conditions improvement. The modification of seed coat surface structure by plasma irradiation is investigated with scanning electron microscopy and plasma emission spectra are analyzed for possible mechanisms determination of biological effect of plasma treatment.
