Magnetizing Seeds for Increased Nutrient Content, Yield, Better Flavor, and Earlier Harvest

Davis and Rawls discovered that using a suitable unipolar biomagnet or an electromagnetic seed stimulator to treat seeds with North or South pole magnetism resulted in more vigorous plants with higher nutrient uptake and subsequently greater nutritional value. They produced higher yields as well.

In the words of Davis and Rawls, South pole exposure produced plants in which "Oxygen was liberated in above normal amounts. Intake of carbon dioxide was increased. Uptake of nutrients from organic matter and fertilizers was increased. The... diameter of the roots were greater, with a proliferation of root growth in the soil, and there were cycles where growth speeded up and then slowed down, unlike the untreated control plants of the same variety." "Sugar beets yielded more sugars. Peanuts presented outstanding increases in oils. Protein levels indicated increases as to plant type over normal amounts." North pole exposure often increases the size of a plant even more so than the South pole and also causes an increase in nutrient content, but generally not as great an increase as South pole exposure.

Again, quoting Davis and Rawls, "As a general matter... south pole exposure of seeds produces plants having lower acidity, thicker but shallower root structures, larger leaves, greater sugar content, faster germination rate and increased protein content compared to north pole exposed seeds. North pole exposure of seeds produces plants having greater yield, taller plants and longer and deeper roots than south pole exposed plants. As a result, south pole exposed seeds produce plants having generally better individual characteristics in terms of nutritional values and north pole exposed seeds produce plants having larger size and greater yields. However, the foregoing conclusions are merely generalizations, and the particular pole to which a particular seed should be exposed varies on a seed type by seed type basis. Aside from these general trends, there is little consistency in results attained between different seed types under similar exposure conditions although for each seed type the results appear to be consistently reproducible. Thus it cannot be stated categorically that north pole exposure is better or worse than south pole exposure--it depends upon the seed type and the desired results."


We recently began growing some hot pepper plants for personal use and, of course, we magnetized the seeds. They received North or South pole exposure for varying lengths of time. For convenience, rigorous scientific protocols for this particular research were not followed as our goal was simply to determine which magnetized plants were most superior to the controls. All growing conditions were the same except we ran out of square pots and had to use a few round pots that are about the same size, but a little smaller. Ideally, the pots would be exactly the same to show the results most accurately. As a general rule magnetized seeds, especially when they are South pole magnetized, germinate faster than control seeds that have had no magnetic exposure. Hot pepper seeds germinate sporadically over a period of several weeks, and that is especially true of extremely hot varieties like those shown below. Various factors such as planting depth, the amount of capsaicin on or in the seed, the planting medium, etc., may well account for the low germination rate and the rate of germination as there were three seeds in each pot. Here we focus on the differences in growth rate between magnetized plants and controls. All magnetized plants were watered with South pole
magnetized water (tap). Controls were watered with plain tap water. We used our High Energy Biomagnetic Tape to magnetize all of the seeds used in this research, and our N-2 biomagnet to magnetize the water.

We will be adding more photos of the results of our magnetized seed experiments soon. There is a photo of another one of the seed magnetizers invented by Davis and Rawls in the slide show on our Home page.

If you're interested in magnetizing seeds for your own garden our High Energy Biomagnetic Tape is excellent for this purpose and gives

comparable results to the seed magnetizers.

These are Carolina Reaper hot pepper plants, the variety awarded the Guinness World Record for the world's hottest pepper in 2013. The two control plants, that weren't magnetized, surfaced on 9-24-16. The larger of the two S pole magnetized plants (bottom, center) surfaced on 10-4-16 and the smaller one on 10-6-16. The S pole plant above the pot with two S pole plants surfaced on 10-3-16. The plant magnetized with the N pole (bottom left) surfaced on 10-6-16. This photo was taken on 10-24-16.

As you can see the larger plant magnetized with the S pole (bottom, center) and the one above it, also S-pole magnetized, are a little larger than the controls, even though they surfaced 10 and 12 days later, respectively.

These are Butch Taylor Reaper Scorpion (BTR Scorpion) hot pepper plants, a cross between the Carolina Reaper and the Butch T Trinidad Scorpion, the previous World Record holder from 2011 to 2013. This strain is a future contender to be designated the world's hottest pepper. The control plants, there are two but one surfaced with its shell attached and struggled to grow, are on the top left. The first, the tiny one (photo on left), surfaced on 9-24-16 and the larger one on 10-1-16. The three S pole plants in the large pots in the bottom row surfaced on 9-24-16 (on the left), and the other two (center and right) on 9-27-16. They were all in the same pot and were transplanted to these larger containers on 10-18-16, but over-watering slowed their growth for several days. In the pot with 3 N pole magnetized plants in it (top row, 2nd from left), the two largest ones surfaced on 9-27-16 and the third on 10-6-16. The N pole magnetized plant (top row, 2nd from right) surfaced on 10-1-16, the same day as the control, but is much larger. The S pole magnetized plant (top row, right) surfaced on 10-1-16 too and is even larger. These three photos were  taken on 10-24-16

Once again, the magnetized plants, in this case the S pole magnetized plants in the bottom row (particularly the first two to surface, as the third is a runt), and the one on the top right, are among the largest, followed by the N pole magnetized plants (top row, 2nd & 3rd from right). The N pole magnetized plants (top row, 2nd from left) and the S pole plants (bottom left and center) would be considerably larger had they not had to compete with one another in the same pots. Though the control pot at top left has two plants in it, one is quite tiny and likely didn't impede the growth of the larger plant to any significant degree. The largest plants, N & S pole magnetized, surfaced the same day or 4 and 7 days earlier than the largest control, but they are far larger in size. The pots in the top row were elevated with a two by four to more accurately compare the differences in size, to the extent that their soil is about 3/4 of an inch higher than the soil in the large pots on the bottom. In other words, they appear slightly larger than they really are in comparison to the S pole 4 day magnetized plants in the bottom row.

Extremely hot peppers have been growing in popularity in recent years. There are many breeders seeking to produce the next World Record holder. Imagine what magnetizing these pepper seeds, and other so called superhot varieties, will do to the capsaicin content of the peppers, the chemical compound responsible for the sensation of heat! You would be at a distinct disadvantage if you were competing for this title and you didn't magnetize your seeds. Capsaicin has been shown in studies to be excellent for our health. Hot peppers are also good sources of Vitamin C, Vitamin A, the B vitamins, and other beneficial nutrients.

Research has shown that the vitamin and mineral content of many vegetables and some fruits has declined drastically in recent decades. It would be reasonable to assume that the vitamin and mineral content of herbs has declined as well. One reason is that crops take up many minerals, including trace minerals, and often only a few of them are returned to the soil in the form of fertilizers. As the soils become more depleted, naturally so do the crops grown in them. This is not uncommon even on organic farms. Manures and composts are only as nutritionally rich as the diet of the animals that produced them, and the food they eat is only as nutritionally rich as the soil in which it was grown. Some composts contain  plant materials, but since most soils are mineral deficient, then again so too are the plants grown in them. By supplying ample calcium, which is often overlooked, from high calcium lime, gypsum and other sources, and other minerals from rock dusts, kelp,
sea minerals, etc., the soil's mineral content can be replenished. And by magnetizing the seeds of the plants to be grown and using South pole magnetized water to water them, which helps to solubilize the minerals and make them more available, among other benefits, plants can be grown that will take up those minerals most efficiently and be very nutritious.

Whether you are trying to produce the hottest pepper in the world or just growing some vegetables or herbs for your family, magnetizing your seeds with our High Energy Biomagnetic Tape and watering with magnetized water made with our N-2 Biomagnet, will produce plants that germinate faster, are more vigorous, more nutritious, taste better, mature sooner, and produce a greater yield than they otherwise would. Plus, our
High Energy Biomagnetic Tape and our N-2 Biomagnet can be used repeatedly, year after year, to achieve this.
