From Kook Science
Electroculture is a method of applying atmospheric electricity to the fertilization of plant life; this may also be extended to include magnetism (magnetoculture), radio, light (chromopathy), and sound. The application of electroculture is intended to assist the agriculturalist to "accelerate growth rates, increase yields, and improve crop quality", as well as "protect plants from diseases, insects and frost."
