Message from Prof. Olle Johanssen, co-author of the study:

Our paper rhymes very well with e.g. Kumar A, Singh HP, Batish DR, Kaur S, Kohli RK, "EMF radiations (1800 MHz)-inhibited early seedling growth of maize (Zea mays) involves alterations in starch and sucrose metabolism", Protoplasma 2015; Aug 16. [Epub ahead of print], and Grémiaux A, Girard S, Guérin V, Lothier J, Baluška F, Davies E, Bonnet P, Vian A, "Low-amplitude, high-frequency electromagnetic field exposure causes delayed and reduced growth in Rosa hybrida", J Plant Physiol 2015; 190: 44-53. doi: 10.1016/j.jplph.2015.11.004. [Epub ahead of print]. And also, of course, with the classic: Roux D, Vian A, Girard S, Bonnet P, Paladian F, Davies E, G Ledoigt, "High frequency (900 MHz) low amplitude (5 V/m) electromagnetic field: a genuine environmental stimulus that affects transcription, translation, calcium and energy charge in tomato", Planta 2008; 227: 883-891.
