Magnetizing Seeds before Planting??

Soil4ever(Zone 4)March 26, 2012

I just came across this theory of placing seeds next to a magnet before planting. It is supposed to increase your yield. Does anyone have any opinions about it? Is it worth my time in results to try it? If so what kind of magnet would you want to use? And for how long?

Thanks, Alyson

Sounds like a waste of time to me, but it definately won't hurt.

The best results can be obtained from placing seeds directly on a magnet for a few days prior to planting. There is another thread on this forum titled, "Growing Plants with Magnets", that has detailed information in it (by The Tree).
How to Magnetize Seeds

You can go to the Biomagnetics USA website too. There are some photos of magnetized plants there.

I think the magnet method would be attractive for seeds of Ostrya virginiana and Olneya tesota.
