ABSTRAKT

High growth and yield of food crops are desired due to globally increased food demands. Highly reactive gaseous plasma treatment technologies have been recently shown to improve the growth of various types of seeds, and we attempted to study the influence of different treatment conditions on the growth of garlic cloves. Inductively coupled, low-pressure, radio frequency oxygen plasma was used for the treatment of garlic cloves. We studied the influence of plasma treatment conditions on garlic sprout emergence as well as on wettability, surface chemistry, and morphology of garlic skin (the protective leaf). Our findings show that at appropriate plasma treatment conditions, improved sprout emergence of garlic cloves is observed.
