Abstract

Vibration at 50 Hz significantly stimulated seed germination and root elongation in both rice and cucumber plants. The vibration barely affected the elongation of cucumber hypocotyls but stimulated the elongation of rice coleoptiles. Thus, plants' responses to vibration at a particular frequency differ from those to other mechanical stimuli.
