But does this have an effect on the plants or are there no differences? In this inquiry it was investigated if there are any effects and how harmful these effects are. Because the plants near the road take a bit too long to grow, there had been decided to work with cress, Lepidium sativum. The inquiry question is: What are the effects of NaCl on cress? Our hypothesis is that the plants won’t encounter disadvantages in low concentrations (up and till 0.20 mol/L), but that they will grow less fast in higher concentrations ( 0.25 mol/L and higher), because NaCl withdraws liquid from plants.
Clover Plant Investigation Abstract The hypothesis for this investigation is that clovers are more abundant in areas with more sun coverage than areas without sun coverage or little sun coverage. This is tested by counting the amount of clover plants in 1m 2 quadrants and seeing the coverage they have in that quadrant, the results are compared; the quadrants in the sun are compared to the quadrants in the shade. The sunlight did affect the number of clovers and the coverage in a 1m2 quadrants, quadrants in shaded areas showed significantly less clovers and coverage. Introduction The background theory is that certain plants rely on the sun more than others and will not grow as much in areas where there is little amounts of sunlight. The hypothesis is that the clover plants will not grow as much in the shade as they will in the sun.
Also, data showed that pea seeds had higher, more successful germination rates than bean seeds in cool temperatures. Overall, the hypothesis was supported by the data found in through the experiment and pea seeds should be grown in cooler temperatures, whereas bean seeds should be grown in warmer temperatures. Introduction: Seed propagation involves either the natural or assisted placement of seeds in favorable conditions to promote germination. By definition, germination is “the process by which a dormant seed begins to sprout and grow into a seedling under the right growing conditions” (www.biology-online.org). The purpose of this experiment was to investigate on which seeds have the highest germination rate in varying climatic temperatures.
This inorganic fertilizer gives all the nutrients the plant needs to grow which causes the plant to grow more rapidly and produces the fruits and vegetables quickly. Even though this is less time consuming and less costly, it now has toxins within the fruit or vegetable. When the plant has reached maturity, it is vulnerable to predators that eat the “natural” foods. This is when the plants are protected by fenced in areas so animals such as deer, rodents, or anything else that is harmful to the plans. Growers that are not growing organic foods use pesticides and are the only toxic substances released intentionally into our environment to kill living things.
Observe 7. Record Results Observations ￼￼￼ ￼￼￼ Conclusion A seed does not need water to grow. Although a seed getting water speeds up the process, it doesn’t have to get water to grow. Without water, the plant isn’t as green as it should be, but it is still growing. The experiment did not go as planned though.
1.03 Scientific Method Part 1: (Scenario 2) Katherine wants to investigate if the time of day a plant is watered affects the growth of the plant. She hypothesizes that a plant watered in the morning will grow faster than a plant watered at other times of the day. 1. Identify the specific independent and dependent variables that will be involved in an experiment to test this hypothesis. The independent variable in an experiment to test Katherine's hypothesis is when the water is given to the plant.
Abstract Inspecting Growth And Life Span For Alcea With Different Types Of Water This project could help gardeners by trying to find the right type of water that can make the Alcea grower taller and longer. It is hypothesized that the plant watered with the regular type of water will grow taller and longer than the sugar water or salt water. Three plants of the same kind were placed in a pot and were each watered a different kind of water. The data showed that the plant that was watered with regular water did indeed grow longer and taller. Based on the information found the hypothesis was correct because in the research it says that some plants do not grow well with water with salt or sugar added.
Compare the benefits of growing GM seeds for crops with the potential negative consequences of using them. The top of the GM seeds potential list is that you can grow more in a smaller location; that produces a greater load than having needing a huge space to support a larger amount of crops. Gives you the advantage of being able to use more weed killer than the non-GM seeds. GM seeds growing pattern could help get more crop and make it less expensive for the consumer. Down side was the cross pollination with non-GM seeds creation a new genetic strand, that is not known.
A good question to ask yourself is whether or not it is worth it to pay the extra money for organic foods. Although the organic foods do not provide the extra nutritional punch as once believed, I feel it is worth paying the extra money for these items. Any reduction in exposure to harmful pesticides may be beneficial to your long term health. Pesticides have been proven to cause skin irritation, eye irritation, nerve system damage as well as certain cancers and hormone disruption. The authors of this study did a great job identifying the benefits of
The alternative would be for taking adequate amounts according instructed by the board, I would increase the fruits. In several of these foods if there was use of beans. However, as any process that always loses originality, decide to take the fruit juice instead of consuming naturally loses some of that fiber breaks to change shape and temperature. Besides the calories would be more due to the additions of preservatives, colorings and flavor
