To make crops grow larger and faster has been the primary concern of agriculture for ages. All methods of cultivation techniques and technologies have been developed to fulfill this aim; from simple crop rotation to complex synthetic fertilizers. Another cultivation technology discovered in agriculture is the application of electricity and magnetism that can accelerate growth rates, increase yields, and improve crop quality. This technology is called electroculture. Electroculture can protect plants from diseases and insect and likewise reduce the requirements for fertilizer or pesticides. Farmers can grow bigger and better crops in less time, with less effort, and at a lower cost. Rationalizing the concept of electricity’s role in plant growth stimulation and application of solar technology, the researcher designed and developed a project that would help increase the growth of plants without losing their quality and nutrition. Electroculture with proper watering system will help the plants grow faster. Moreover, the portable solar power supply may be used to power up the project for a more cost effective operation. With this project, there will be an increase in the production of crops and may help resolve the shortage of food in the years ahead.
