Title: THE EFFECTS OF LOW DOSES OF GAMMA RADIATION ON PLANT YIELDS

Abstract

the effects of low doses of gamma radiation from Co/sup 60/ were tested on dormant seeds of flax, radish, and cabbage, and on young plants of flax, cabbage, lettuce, ciover, duckweed, and pine. Fresh or dry weights were taken as a measure of yieid at harvest. Only in the case of pine seedlings was significant stimulation noticed: this occurred in the dose range 2 to 6 rad after 9 months growth. (auth)
