Plants respond to sounds of different frequencies
Sound is acoustic energy in an oscillatory pressure wave transmitted through gases, liquids, and solids. Like other physical environmental factors such as moisture, light, wind, and temperature, it can have a physiological effect on plant growth and other metabolic processes, or at a molecular level-triggered within a plant cell upon stimulation by sound vibrations. The evidence emerging from biological studies on plants’ response to sound waves indicates that plants are susceptible organisms that generate and react to sound signals from their environment (Mishra et al.,2016). We now believe that plants can indeed benefit from sound through their mechanosensory machinery. Many studies have already demonstrated sound-induced phenotypic changes and possible sound signaling pathways in model and crop plants (Jung et al., 2018).
Recent studies show that sound wave technology has recently been applied to plants at various physiological growth stages, e.g., seed germination, callus growth, endogenous hormones, photosynthesis mechanism, and transcription of specific genes. The sound stimulation could enhance disease resistance and decrease chemical fertilizers and biocides (Zhang 2012).
With more frequency, scientific publications show experiments developed by exposing different species of plants to different frequencies, which have generated responses in observable changes in structure, growth, and production, some of these studies we have compiled in Table 1.
Kimynasi plant booster device was programmed with a wide range of specific frequencies with scientific probed effects on plant growth, and provide physical stimuli to enhance the plant metabolism. Our system is programmed with over 3000 frequencies ranging from 10Hz to 150kHz, including many of those used in the referenced studies above. It generates the necessary support to guarantee the Kyminasi Plant Booster’s effectiveness in any crop. Recent studies have also shown that the land previously treated with Kyminasi Plant Booster technology generates nutrient absorption more efficiently for the plants.
