Abstract

We studied effects of atmospheric air dielectric barrier discharge plasma irradiation to seeds of radish sprouts on chlorophyll and carotenoid concentrations in their leaves. Plasma irradiation increases chlorophyll concentration under some irradiation conditions, whereas the irradiation has little effects on carotenoid concentration. These results show that plasma irradiation to seeds has influence on cell activities in a selective way.
