"The first study was made to test the effect of vibrated water on different sorts of plants and it started on May 27, 1986. The experiment was conducted on a 300sqm piece of land with the foundations of a building nearby. This small farm is situated about 15km east of Vienna, Austria. We were able to use the electricity supply from this building to construct an automatic watering system.
The weather data were provided by the weather observation station in Enzesfeld, the local town nearby. It was a rainy summer with an average rainfall of 54mm during the test period. The average temperature during the test period was 24.5 Centigrade and there was a quite strong north-west wind blowing in this area which dries the soil very rapidly.
The soil type was brown earth, ie. sandy, with clay and loam. Because the test area was set up late in the year, it was heavily overgrown with annual and perennial weeds. Thedrefore the field was sprayed with Gesparim on May 25, 1986. As we began late it was not possible to apply any sort of fertilization.
The test area was divided into four strips, each 4m x 20m = 80sqm in size. Each strip was subdivided into four plots, each 4 x 5m = 20sqm. We selected sunflowers and corn, next to other typical plants of this area to be used for this experiment.
The drip-irrigation system of the Salen company in Vienna was chosen. Normal drinking water was brought from the building to the field through an one-inch hose to which 3 half-inch hoses were connected. In order to cut out the possibility of human error, the irrigation equipment was fully automatic with the help of one seven-day timer, two 24 hour timers and three magnetic valves.
Seven days after setting up the test area, on June 4, 1986, the irrigation was put to operation. The test area (vibrated and unvibrated strips) was irrigated for one and a half hours from 1am to 2.30am every night. After 30 days the irrigation was reduced to once a week, again for one and a half hours. On October 26, 1986, the irrigation was suspended.
Results: The vibrated plants were greener, more vital and showed significant lead in their growth over the non-vibrated plants. The vibrated water not only activates the growth of the plants, it also enlarges and improves the sprouting-potential of the seeds. For example, the sprouting ratio of sunflowers rates normally between 75% and 80% Through the use of vibrated water the ratio was increased to 95-100%.
Because of the high germination ration and the strong growth of the plants in the vibrated part of the test area you can well imagine that this caused a severe competition for space, water and light. Such strong competition normally inhibits the growth of plants, but despite the mentioned density of the vibrated area, its harvest was 20-25% better than the control plots."
