Sci. Proj. Hypothesis: I greatly think that variations of fertilizer will not make any difference in plant growth.
I. Bibliography
a. Title:
Effect of Organic Fertilizers Application on Growth, Yield and Quality of Tomatoes in North Kordofan (sandy soil) western Sudan
b. Author(s):
Kh. H. M. Ibrahim
O.A.S. Fadni
c. Journal:
Greener Journal of Agricultural Sciences
Vol. 3, April 2013

d. Source: http://www.gjournals.org/GJAS/GJAS%20Pdf/2013/April/Ibrahim%20and%20Fadni.pdf II. Main Idea
This article’s objective was to examine the effect physical, chemical and nutritional properties of the soil and increasing crops yield. Five treatments were used in this experiment. Results showed that organic fertilizers positively affected physical growth, nutrition, and yield.
III. Supporting Details
a. Results showed that tomato growth parameters in the first season (2009) were significantly, influenced by different organic fertilizers. Organic fertilizers have a clear impact on the different stages of plant growth (physical).
b. Added organic fertilizers increased the proportion of organic carbon in the soil surface, this showed an increase of organic matter, which has a significant impact in plant nutrition.
c. Data represents the yield parameters in the first season (2009/10). All parameters measured gave highly significant differences among treatments. Tomato yield was positively affected by organic fertilizers application.
IV. Analysis of Article
a. Despite being relative to my science project, this article was rather more complex and specific. I can see this article as my science project put into real life application and at a professional level. The goal of my science project is to see how different fertilizers will affect overall plant growth. The goal of this article was to demonstrate the effect of different organic fertilizers on growth, yield, and quality of tomatoes in the sandy soil of North Kordofan.
b. Strengths of this paper include

    is a dime sized battery which we use for watches. Cells force electrons to flow along conductors.(DK Science 150). "The electrical force of a cell or battery is called its electromotive force (emf). This force, which makes electrons flow around a circuit, is measured in units called volts (v). Each king of cell has a particular emf. A dry cell, for example, has an emf of 1.5volts." (DK science 150) The other way to measure a battery is by how much current it can provide. Current is used to measure…

    Background Research I’m doing my science project on which food wrapping will prevent freezer burn the best aluminum foil, plastic bags, or freezer paper. This experiment seemed interesting to me because a lot of people get freezer burn on their foods. My mother also gets freezer burn on her foods a lot and she always tries different food wrappings but none of them seem to work. This project will benefit people from getting freezer burn on their food, and so they will know which wrapping…

    On a daily basis, humans are surrounded by noise and unable to avoid its ubiquitous presence. This poses a major problem for teenage garage bands, whose parental units do not approve of ear piercing feedback and novice percussionists. Although there is no guaranteed solution to the cacophony, sound absorbing material acts as a “noise blanket” to reduce sound to a more tolerable level. The objective of our experiment is to determine if sound absorption by foam and related materials changes with the…

    RESEARCH: Hydroponics is a subset of hydroculture and is a way of growing plants using mineral nutrient solutions, using just water. Researchers discovered in the 18th century that plants absorb mineral nutrients as inorganic ions in water. Normally soil is thought to be required for plant growth, but in actuality, soil is not needed at all. When the mineral nutrients in the soil dissolve in water, plant roots have the ability to absorb them. When the required mineral nutrients are introduced…
