ABSTRACT

Present study deals with the impact of microwave heated water on the germination of seeds and plant systems. The influence of microwave heated water, distilled water and tap water were studied in different seed samples with respect to seed germination and the stem length. For the study a microwave oven was used. The distilled water was produced from Millipore distillation unit and the tap water supplied by Municipal Corporation of Hyderabad was used. The seed samples of mustard, fenugreek and green gram were used for comparing the different sources of water. The microwave power, exposure time on water samples was maintained as 180watts and 15 minutes. The study on seed germination and stem length was carried out for a period of 21 days. The results indicated that germination of plants was less with microwave heated water in comparison to tap water and distilled water. The decay of plants was high in distilled water.

Keywords: Germination, microwaves, distilled water, microwave treated water, tap water.
