The Effect of the Number of Seeds on the Height, Mass, and the Amount of Plants That Germinate This lab was conducted to experiment how the amount Marigold and Zinna seeds in a pot can change the height, mass, and the amount plants that grow. If the number of Marigold and Zinna seeds decrease; then the height of the plants will increase, the mass will decrease, and the amount of plants the germinate will decrease. The data collected for lab B is shown below. It was hypothesized that if there were less seeds in the pot, then height of the plant would increase, and the data below supports that. It was also hypothesized that the mass of the plant and the amount of plants grown would decrease with more seeds, and I reject that hypothesis.
Michael Pollan suggests how industrial food system is unsustainable because of monocultures, which means a lot of the same species are grown together and that’s only possible by using antibiotics to keep them alive. To keep crop healthy, fertilizer is needed. For example, in Iowa, all the farms were corn and soybeans, which are for industrial use mainly. Separating the animals from the farms raises a huge sanitation problem and the animals are not happy with the conditions, a pollution problem occurs as well. Society is obsessed with productivity becoming cheap, which has made more problems regarding pesticides.
If we water too little this could lead to the seed drying out Because if the plants are not watered everyday the seeds would dry out and not germinate but if it’s watered too often then the seed would drown in the water and not germinate Amount of solution watered to By using a measuring beans (12ml) cylinder to measure the solution. Day of watering plant By remembering to come to (everyday for 3 days straight) class everyday for 3 days straight. Area where petri dish
Dear Senator, In less than two decades, genetically modified organisms (GMOs) have replaced our diet with genetically ajusted foods, which can affect human health. GMOs are resistant to pesticides, and is created by splicing genes that are combined through genetic engineering, smething nature cant do instantly. Consuming these genetically, processed foods can lead to increased risk of diseases and even cancer. Most of the time we do not realize that we are eating these harmful toxins as they are infused in our food without our knowledge. While traditional farming choose to grow organic produce and struggle to keep their businesses alive.
Some of the knows health risks from GM are that in stores they do not have nutrition facts/ingredients for GM chemicals in the foods therefore people who have allergies to nuts est. would not be able to eat Gm food because of the chemical traits, by this I mean when scientists put genes into some crops the mixture causes the crops natural genes to be unpredictable and scientists can not analyze for harmful affects within the crops. This leads to unknown toxins and this may cause allergic reactions.
Water Watering plants correctly is vital for developing and maintaining a landscape planting. Lack of water can cause a plant to wilt and ultimately dry up and die. Excessive water can cause roots to die and rot, in which case the plant wilts because it is oxygen starved, and consequently is unable to take up moisture.
Grass-Fed VS. Corn-Fed Stephanie English DeVry Univesity Grass-Fed VS. Corn-Fed What if you were told that the food you eat could lower your risk for heart disease, possibly lower your incidence for cancer and auto-immune diseases and even increase the IQ of your unborn child, would you eat it? What if your child’s behavior will be predetermined by the food you eat would that make you change your food choices? Grass fed VS Corn fed is it a battle we should even debate considering the overwhelming evidence that Grass fed provides the nutrients we need and Corn fed does not. Grass fed beef provides a balance of Omega-3’s which are derived from the leaves, and Omega-6’s which are derived from the seeds of plants, this balance is necessary to provide optimal human health, and will prevent cardiac disease, but will that convince you to eat Grass fed beef or will the cost turn you away and force you to forget about your health and choose Corn fed beef . The corn based agriculture industry exists because of economy to scale and economical production which equates into globalization of food markets.
When the roots are good and thick and the stem has leaved out, your avocado is ready for potting. Use a terracotta pot with a top diameter of about 10 inches. Put broken crockery around the drainage hole in the bottom of the pot and fill with soil rich in humus, leaving enough space for the seed and roots. Place the seed gently on top of the soil, taking care not to injure the roots. Carefully add soil until the seed is half covered, but do not tamp it down.
Plant Growth Investigation The scientific method is a way to ask and answer scientific questions by making observations and doing experiments. The question I was attempting to answer was; what are the effects of different types of water on the growth of grass? My hypothesis was if we water the grass seeds with bottled, tap, and salt water, then the seeds getting the bottled water will grow the best and be the tallest at the end of the experiment because the bottled water doesn’t have the toxins that the salt and tap water will have. We needed a lot of materials to conduct our experiment they were; • 6 Seven ounce cups • Soil • Seeds (20 per cup) • The 3 types of water (Salt, Bottled, Tap) • Graduated Cylinder • Ruler • Pencils • Sharpie • Our chart/packet Our procedure was to first gather all of the materials we needed. We first labeled each cup with what type of water we were going to use.
In a plant growing in the dark the chlorophyll will slowly be destroyed causing them to use their food reserves. Once the reserves have been used the plant will die. This is what happens in plants that are not grown in sunlight. Etiolation is a phenomenon that occurs in plants not being grown in sunlight, whereby the stem of the plant rapidly elongates to increase the probability of the plant finding light. In order to carry out this etiolation the plant must use its food reserves, so if the plant does not find light having used these reserves, it will die.
