ELECTRICAL GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — Warrnambool Standard — 22 January 1914
ELECTRICAL GARDEN. Though reports of success in electri. cally stimulating.plants eontinue to be made, commercial results seem to be as far off as ever. . Careful and persistent experiments have been made with a very ample method by M. Basty at Antwerp, and his claim is that during a number of years his garden has shown double and quadruple )ields of lettuce, strawberries and other products The gain is attri 'buted entirely to electricity collected from the atmosphere, and conducted to the soil, no electric generator being em ployed. - The experimenter uses simply ground metallic rods, with unoxidisable points, and sets upright as many of these as may be necessary, pushing them into the soil to the depth of the roots. The assumption is that each rod collects at mespherio electricity from a circle hav ing a radius equal to the rod's height.
