Effects of Plasma Treatment of Maize Seeds (No.2-Zhunuo) on the Biological Properties and Yield
Abstract: The plasma seed processor was used to treat maize seeds (No.2-Zhunuo), and the effects of plasma treatment of the maize seeds on the biological properties and yield were studied by different doses (250 mA - 2000 mA). The results showed that the effect of plasma treatment on the biological characters of maize was different, and the plant characters and yield of maize in the eight groups of plasma treatment were significantly higher than that of untreated (CK), especially the treatment current (dose) of 1500 mA, 1250 mA, and 750 mA, respectively, which had significant changes in the effect of maize plant traits. From the yield point of view, the top two are: plasma dose 1500 mA, and 1250 mA. The plasma doses of 750 mA, 1000 mA, and 1500 mA were selected from the fruit number of maize. The disease resistance of treated maize is also better than that of untreated maize (CK). In a word, the yield, plant traits, and disease resistance of maize seeds can be improved to different extent by different doses of plasma.
