The normal levels of air ions, such as H+, O2-, OH-, CO3-, CO4- etc. in the atmosphere at the ground level varies from 1000 to 5000 per ml. The concentration below the normal has been found to lower the growth rate of the plants. Air ions of either sign, when produced at the rate of 9.5*10^6 ions per ml.s in air and air anion current of 4 pA.cm-1 has been found to influence the plant growth. This review discusses the evidences for these influences and the probable mechanisms that bring forth these changes
