Abstract

Effect of electric current flowing at the surface of stem of bean (Phaseolus angularis) on the growth was studied using an electric isolation between the elongation and mature regions. The growth was retarded by the electric isolation because of change in pH distribution around the stem, associated with decreasing surface electric current. Electric current flowing at the surface between the elongation and mature regions is important for the growth of stems.
