Research Question How does the amount of fertilizer affect quantitative and qualitative traits in Brassic rapa?
Predictions We think that the plants that are grown with more fertilizer will grow taller than the plants with less.
Experimental Design Experimental Design: Three Treatments: Low Fertilizer Concentration Normal Fertilizer Concentration (Control) High Fertilizer Concentration High Fertilizer – 4 Osmocote pellets per seed; 6 seeds = 24 pellets Normal Fertilizer – 2 Osmocote pellets per seed; 6 seeds = 12 pellets Low Fertilizer – 1 Osmocote pellets per seed; 6 seeds = 6 pellets Fertilizer Osmocote Smart-Release Plant Food (19 – 6 – 12) 19% - Nitrogen 6% - Phosphate 12% - Potassium (potash)
