Electric field as a physical factor, its impact on organism has become an important research topic in biophysics. Trying to find the rule of electric field’s impact on plant growth has the important meaning for carrying out the deep research of the influence of electric field on plants and for developing and utilizing the electric biological effects. In this paper, we have processed the corn seeds through electric field firstly, and then carried out experimental determination on its germination situation. At last, we have analyzed the relationship between electric biological effects and processing conditions, as well as the aging property of electric biological effects. The results show that the influence of different processing conditions (different electric field intensity and different processing time) on the biomass of seed and seedling is different.
