In the 21 st century the world faces ecological problems due to the industrialization. One of these issues may be intensive agriculture. The next study reflects the attempt
to use a natural means compounds in organic farming. Considering the antibacterial capacity of the coloidal silver solutions was born the idea of using it in organic
farming for medical plants development.
Over the course of several years, the observations made have favored the balance to lower concentrations of colloidal silver water solutions.
During this study was observed that the plants were more healthy and the production and the quality of the fruits was also modiffyed. The plant specie of Momordica charantia L. was chosen for its high interest in its
effects. The fruit being used in alternative medicine, also being called „natural insulin”. The seeds used in the experiment were organic certified and were obtained
from already acclimatized plants. The experiment unfolding in partially protected environment on an area of about 400 square meters. This paper highlights the effects of seeds treatament and watering treatment with 3
different concentations (5 ppm, 15 ppm and 30 ppm) of colloidal silver watter solutions on the development of Momordica charantia L. plants. It is worth mentioning that in previous studies these concentrations attracted the most attention. The most favorable results could be seen in plants treated with colloidal silver solution at the higher concentrations.The Momordica charantia L. plants being obtained by using organic farming method, this study can reflect an inovative method of organic fertilization.
