It appears that lightning is a type of plasma that can affect plant growth by transforming nitrogen gas in the air into a source of plant nutrients.


Research is underway on the use of low-temperature plasma to promote seed germination and increase yields, and its use in agriculture could lead to sustainable farming.


An old Japanese novel, the "Dragonfly Diary" of the Heian period (794-1185), also describes the legend that lightning intersects with rice to bring about a bountiful harvest.



It was a surprising fact that thunder could help farmer’ cultivation and production
