In recent years a lot of researches have been carried out about sensitivity of the living organisms to magnetic fields and nanoparticles. Therefore, to evaluate the effect of the magnetic field and silver nanoparticles on photosynthetic pigments (chlorophyll a, chlorophyll b and carotenoids), proline, glycine betaine, soluble sugars and proteins, nitrate and nitrate reductase activity and protein electrophoresis pattern on Calendula officinalis L., in 2015 experiments were performed in the Department of Biology, University of Urmia. Seedlings were grown for 30 days in four treatments including: control, magnetic field with B = 3 mT for an hour per day, silver nanoparticles (50 ppm), and magnetic field (B = 3mT) plus silver nanoparticles (50 ppm). The results showed that plants treated with magnetic field, silver nanoparticles and magnetic field + silver nanoparticles photosynthetic pigments (chlorophyll a, chlorophyll b and carotenoids) content, compatible solutions content such as proteins and soluble sugar, proline andglycine betaine and nitrate content and nitrate reductase activity were significantly (P<0.05) increased compared to control group. Electrophoretic pattern of proteins investigated the maximum bands visible on gel electrophoresis were for treated groups with silver nanoparticles + magnetic field.
