Effects of nano-bubbles on seed germination of muskmelon
Keywords:muskmelon, nano-bubbles, seed germination
Nano-bubbles (NBs) demonstrate their full potential in fields like agriculture, aquaculture, food processing, and wastewater treating. This study investigated the effects of air NBs on the progress of seed germination of muskmelon. Distilled water was treated with NBs under time schedules of 10, 15, and 20 min and untreated distilled water was used as the control. Statistically significant differences in seed germination rate occurred between treatments. Growth indicators such as stem height, root length, and leaf area were measured after 14 d after treatment with water containing NBs. Statistical analysis showed that there were significant differences in the dry weight of samples between treatments although these differences were quite small.
