Introduction Aim: To compare the effectiveness of compost and earthworms on the germination and yield of a spinach crop. Motivation: Fertilisers are mixture of chemicals that add nutrients to the soil to establish better yielding crops (Berger, 2013). Though these products have proved to provide many beneficial aspects to the agricultural sector, they have many negative environmental consequences. Fertilisers contain many substances, including mostly potassium, phosphorus, sulphur, calcium, magnesium and nitrogen. These substances, when they accumulate in the soil, can have harmful side effects on the environment and subsequently on the productivity of crops (Vimpany and Lines-Kelly, 2004).
These characteristics are helpful in the production of food, allowing farmers to use fewer chemicals and to grow fewer crops with the ideal conditions to also prevent eutrophication. Pesticides can have unintentional effects on targeted species even though pesticides protect crops against unwanted insects. GMOs could harm human health as well. Researches used a particular gene from a Brazilian nut to increase Methionine in soya beans. The insertion of this gene has caused allergic reactions when the soya beans have been eaten by people who are allergic to nuts.
Other organic foods and liquids are usually good for diluting the nitrogen. Some things are not good for countering these things like vitamin C is not very good in this case. Other things you can do are to look into other fertilizers that don’t have a lot of nitrogen or you could try to make your own healthy beneficial fertilizer. You could also just coat your grass with some of the substances that help dilute the nitrogen. Putting some apple cider vinegar in some natural fertilizer or to spray it on the grass could help.
Although A. fulica can have a negative effect to humans as it feeds on the crops of farmers, resulting in a loss in crops available for the farmers to sell. Additionally, when the A. fulica dies it can cause pollution to the soil around it since its body is composed of calcium carbonate which when left in the soil can change the soil
%Pasreceived is 5.8±0.008% and %Pdry 12.7±0.008 and %P2O5asreceived 6.63±0.008 and %P2O5dry 14.48±0.008. This shows that there are also other components present in the fertilizer sample that is Introduction The agricultural value of fertilizer samples depend on their total phosphate and water content. Natural phosphates are found in small amounts in all better types of soil and their presence is very important for plant growth. Phosphate content was determined as a precipitate magnesium ammonium phosphate hexahydrate.  Moisture determination is an important indicator of the fertilizer 's quality.
As an example, scientists have developed a new type of tomato that grows in salty soil. Another good discovery in genetic engineering of plants is the exclusion of the gene responsible for caffeine in coffee beans, creating decaffeinated coffee beans, which can then be grown naturally. List of Disadvantages of Genetically Modified Foods 1. Allergic Reactions According to research by the Brown University, resent genetically modified foods can pose significant allergy risks to people. It states that genetic modification often adds or mixes proteins that were not indigenous to the original animal or plant, which might cause new allergic reactions in our body.
Nowadays consumers demand cheap food so more of corn and soy are in demand. Farmers grow these crops consistently which is known as monoculture; because of this the soil depletes and forces farmers to use greater amounts of pesticides and fertilizers. Even the animals are fed corn, which again motivates farmers to cultivate the same crop. The effect of food on climate is scary. Because of monoculture lot of pesticides and fertilizers are used.
• GM cops mostly tastes better than regular crops due to flavour enhancing genes Crystal Lombardo. (2015). Disadvantages of genetically modified crops: (Source one) • Cross contamination of pollen from modified plants can contaminate surrounding grass and weeds, thus giving them the same resistance as the crops. This can create an issue of overgrown areas of grasses and weeds. • Antibiotic resistance is also lessening, as antibiotic properties are inserted into crops.
This study was conducted by Iowa State University that focused on corn and soybean rotations compared to oats and alfalfa. The soybean and corn rotations included a mix of chemicals and fertilizers. Where on the two separate plots of oat and alfalfa, they used manure fertilizer. This study showed that the need for herbicides was reduced by 88% and the costs did not change for the oat and alfalfa plots (Bittman). Organic farming is proving to be a threat to pesticides, with the increase popularity of going
The genus Ananas has distinctive characteristics which merging the whole inflorescence into a huge compound fruit. The main pineapple producers in the world that supplying nearly 50 % of the total output are Thailand, Philippines, Brazil and China. There are some other important producers such as India, Kenya, Nigeria, Indonesia and Mexico (Hossain, Akhtar and Anwar, 2015). Adult pineapple plants have height in 1.2 m with a diameter of 1.5 m which consists of several parts. The main morphological structures of pineapple are the leaves, stem, peduncle, multiple fruit, shoots, roots and the crown.
