Abstract
The effects of a magnetic field on the germination rate and on chloroplast formation of broccoli were investigated. As a result, germination rate and the growth of broccoli were in the order of experimental group B > experimental group A > control group C. Also, the fluorescence and the amounts of chloroplasts in broccoli were in the order of experimental group A > control group C > experimental group B. Thus, the germination rate and the growth of broccoli depended on the magnetic field and magnetic field treatment can be seen to help chloroplast production and plants development, but the magnetic field can have a more positive effect if its strength is within an appropriate range.
