||Class research question: How does the amount of fertilizer affect quantitative and qualitative traits in Brassica rapa?
||We predict that the plants with the high fertilizer concentration will grow much faster than the low fertilizer concentration. We made this prediction based off our data, it shows that the high fertilizer has made our plants grow quicker.
||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
