    Aim The objective of the experiment is to explore the process of simple analysis techniques and representative sampling in determining soil nutrient levels. Soil samples collected from Flinders Campus were used to determine their pH, salinity, ammonium, nitrate, phosphate, and nitrite levels. Introduction Unless there is a specific problem detected, the most common reason for undertaking soil analysis is to detect the levels of essential nutrients (Guo, 2009). The commonly analysed nutrients in most samples submitted to the laboratory include macronutrients like potassium, phosphorus, and nitrogen as well as their pH levels. McGrath and Skotnikov (1996) pointed out that knowledge about soil nutrient levels, in addition to relative comprehension…

    Non-mineral nutrients are Hydrogen (H), Oxygen (O), and Carbon (C). They are found in the air and water, and are used in photosynthesis. On the other hand, mineral nutrients are broken down into two groups: Macronutrients and micronutrients. Macronutrients can be broken into two more groups: Primary and Secondary nutrients. Primary nutrients, which are Nitrogen (N), Phosphorus (P), and Potassium (K), are the major, most important nutrients in plant growth, and are usually lacking from the soil…

    Three 3X3” plant pots labelled as A, B, and C were used during our experiment. Each pot contained standard soil media with basic nutrients, and 3 Arabidopsis seeds. All pots were watered with appropriate Hoagland’s Solution formulation three times per week over the next 4 weeks. Pot A (phosphate limitation group) was given a phosphate reduced Hoagland’s solution, whereas Pot B (nitrogen limitation group) was watered with nitrate reduced Hoagland’s solution. Pot C (control) is the control plant…

    In order to properly grow, plants need certain macronutrients and micronutrients. They need the macronutrients: nitrogen, phosphorous, potassium, calcium, sulfur, magnesium; and the micronutrients: boron, chlorine, manganese, iron, zinc, copper, molybdenum, and nickel. (3). Fertilizer enhances the growth rate of plants. Fertilizer adds nutrients and modifies the water retention and aeration of plants. Fertilizer contains three main macronutrients: nitrogen for leaf growth; phosphorus for the…
