There are four basic changes to the seeds and germination capability in crop circle plants documented so far. These radically different reproductive effects depend upon the species of crop involved, the growth phase of the plants at the time the crop circle occurs, and the composition and intensity level of the energy system involved (which appears to differ slightly within each event as well as from event to event):

The 'elongated nodes' are the plants reaction to reaching up for the sun after damage. Life goes on, and plant hormones (yes, auxins) change the growth of the plants to accommodate.
But that does not account for the elongation happening in a period of 1 night...when normal elongation of that length takes weeks....Yes weeks.
Oh, so there is proof that this happened in 1 night? Is there a video or something? Or are they going on farmer hearsay as their 'proof'? I would really like to know what you call proof.
I've seen all this a thousand times, I have plants that I've intentionally damaged the herd on and the growth after is certainly not typical--but it isn't extraterrestrial either.
Please post some of you sources for rapid stem elongation as I have done. And these scientists that you are...
I'm sick of scientists basing their suppositions on already existing unproven 'out there' theories
Are the very ones that prove anything at all....so if not them...then who actually proves anything?
People who use empirical data actually PROVE things. Way to cut off my quote, sorry, but a physicist with some extraterrestrial energy theory isn't going to convince me of ANY oddity in the plant biology world. My apologies.
Unfortunately, there are serious objections to Levengood’s approach. First of all, while he uses various control plants for his experiments, nowhere in the papers I reviewed [1,2,3,4] is there any mention of the work being conducted in double-blind manner so as to minimize the effects of experimenter bias. (As one “cereologist,” the Earl of Haddington, said of another laboratory that claimed to detect different “energy levels” between crop-circle and non-crop-circle areas [a concept that appears to have begun with dowsers], “When they are not told which sample came from a Crop Circle and which from a heap of grain in my back yard they are either unable or unwilling to give a result.”)

The biggest problem with crop circles is this...
The more intricate and complicated designs have been PROVEN to be hoaxes, or human creations, therefor, THEY are the ones used as examples when showing you 'kooks' that ALL crop circles are fake.
I believe that many are real, but we'll never know the truth.
It's a vicious cycle.

If it were not the lazer-printer quality of some of these circles that I base an opinion alone, it is the angled folding and weaving patterns that emerge within some circles. Suffice to say, no stopping of a board could ever create said weave.
The fact remains, you present far more worthy information then some sod looking to just debunk something they are unwilling to comprehend.
There's more to some of these circles then just man with boards. As to what? No clue.
They found the evidence lacking. There has been nothing found associated with crop circles which is inconsistent with human creation.
Broadly speaking, there are two ways the radionuclides could have got into the ground. One way is contamination, which would consist of pouring or spraying a solution or dust containing the radionuclides onto the ground. We think contamination unlikely for the same reasons a hoax is unlikely: the difficulty of making the radionuclides prior to placing them in the area, and the almost equal difficulty of applying the contaminated material over a large but sharply delimited area. The other way is activation. Activation is the process of bombarding atomic nuclei with energetic subatomic particles. The nuclei capture the particles and are thus transformed into different nuclei. If the number of neutrons in the nuclei change, they become different isotopes of the same element. If the number of protons change, they become different elements altogether. For example, it is theoretically possible to change lead into gold by activating it with the right mixture of particles. The only obstacle, aside from its difficulty, is the fact that it would cost more than an ounce of gold to produce an ounce of gold.

The elongation of "nodes" is from the plant trying to right itself to an upward position!
Just because they get stomped over doesn't mean their dead! And I believe that continued growth can explain much of the discrepancy's found
among the crops inside the circle...
Also, remember when the circles first began to get media attention?
They were just plain Jane circles...Now they're elaborate as hell!
Did the aliens get better at making circles since then with more practice?
