During my internship in college I conducted my first study trying to increase the phytate level in snap bean seeds. The hope being that the germinating seed and initial stages of plant growth would have access to this phosphorus, which is often a limiting nutrient in cold soils. It didn't work! Luckily, in science, finding negative results can often be just as insightful and useful as finding positive ones.
