As shown in dining dining Table 1, the development of origins treated with 10 mM Ca2+ ended up being more or less 30% more than the settings for a 3.5 h period following Ca2+ application to Alaska pea origins and roughly 80% more than control for 12 h after the therapy in ageotropum pea. But, the development of Alaska pea origins failed to change from that of control origins whenever measured 12 h after Ca2+ treatment. Roots of Silver Queen corn also revealed a growth of around 70% in development 3 h after application of 20 mM Ca2+ (Table 1). Such treatment that is symmetrical of caps with Ca2+ would not cause curvature for the origins.
