This cutting edge question is generated from some work being done in China where peas were gently shocked over a growing period via wind and solar means of electrical production. Short story- claim is that yields went up 20% and it cost 40 US dollars. Well no, not given the capitalization and depreciations of course that takes all the fun out of it. Link below:
A team of researchers affiliated with multiple institutions in China reports that electroculture can increase agricultural yields. In their paper published in the journal Nature Food, the group describes growing peas using traditional methods while applying electric shocks to other pea crops.
