In order to evaluate the effect of the duration of water in the magnetic field on the qualitative and quantitative characteristics of radish plant, a research was conducted in the research greenhouse of the Faculty of Agriculture, Ferdowsi University of Mashhad, in a completely randomized design with three treatments and three replications. Treatments included distilled water (control), distilled water magnetized with a duration of 30 minutes, and distilled water magnetized in one hour with a field intensity of 0.6 Tesla. The results showed that magnetized water with duration of one hour caused an increase of 29%, 46%, 46%, 43%, 19%, and 82% in leaf area, tuber circumference, chlorophyll a, and carotenoid, fresh weight of shoot and dry weight of the tuber, respectively. Also, this treatment increased tuber mass and fresh weight by about 100%. In general, the treatment of the magnetized water with the duration of one hour was the best treatment. According to the results, the duration of irrigation water magnetization in the magnetic field can affect radish plant characteristics.
