An Innovative Plant Growth Control Experiment with Variable Pressure Between Root Zone and Foliage Chamber 1999-01-2024

If there was a method to pressurize only the root zone of a plant, we might be able to discover an unknown plant behavior that has not been seen before. In order to investigate the effect of supercharging the plant by force feeding water and nutrients, growth rates of plants with pressurized root zone were measured and compared with those of normal plants. Growth rates of plants with pressurized root zone were more than those of plants with unpressurized root zones.
