Cold plasma-mediated seed priming technology can make agriculture more sustainable

The world's population is growing rapidly and food security is threatened. To improve food security while keeping our environment healthy, it is important to find new, environmentally friendly alternatives in agriculture such as organic farming and seed priming. Cold plasma-mediated seed priming is a promising technology that uses cold plasma to prepare seeds, so that they become more resistant. Plasma is an electrically charged gas consisting of positively charged particles, negatively charged particles, and uncharged particles. It is very hot, up to 11,300 °C (20,400 °F) and can be created artificially. In this article, I explain how cold plasma-mediated seed priming works:
