Research Question Class research question: How does the amount of fertilizer affect quantitative and qualitative traits in Brassica rapa?
Predictions We predict that the plants with more fertilizer will grow faster and bigger than the low fertilizer.
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)
