Chapter 14: Ideas for Further
Once you get the hang of the basics of running a system, you may want to start some
additional experiments to further your understanding of electroculture. Hands-on
experimentation is one of the best ways to learn. With enough experimentation, especially
on the variety of plants you that you're already growing, you may be able to move beyond
pure experimentation and work towards reliably applying the methods towards your entire
garden or farm.
Currently, the state of knowledge on the efficacy of electric fields on different types of food
with a variety of plants, you can help growers around the world reap great benefits through
the sharing of knowledge and data.
As you can guess, there are innumerable variables that can affect the operation of your
experiments. The purpose of this section is to introduce the reader to some of the variables
that can be experimented upon.
of your own, but here are some to get you started:
• What method of using electricity results in the fastest growth or the largest yield?
• What is the effect of applying electricity at different times, such as:
• Sowing & germination phase only?
• During main growth?
• Continuously, day and night?
• Intermittently, such as once an hour, once a day, once a week, and so on?
• Do the types of electrodes used make a difference?
• What materials work best?
