  • American Air Pollution

    Often times, when the soil is poisoned by the chemicals through the water, either the plants have a very hard time growing, or they do not grow at all. “In forests, air pollution acidifies soils, depleting important nutrients and reducing the productivity of some forest trees. It adds excess nitrogen, altering nutrient levels and decreasing disease resistance”…

  • The Positive Consequences Of Hydroponic Food Production

    This is because plants that are being grown with hydroponics don 't touch the soil at all, and a All the nutrients provided to the plants its controlled. aAnother positive outcome of the hydroponics is that this process also reduces the contamination. During what we would call conventional farming, a lots of pesticides, chemicals…

  • Titration Experiment

    topic. Dumping hazardous wastes into river, ocean, and soil has resulted in a dramatic change in pH of the non-renewable resources and leads to a destruction in the ecosystem. Specially in agriculture, crops cannot grow in acidic soil, so it is crucial to maintain the acidity of the soil at a neutral state. Consequently, farmers use lime fertilizers such as powdered limestone, CaO, or the ashes of burnt wood to neutralize the acid in the soil. However, considering that the change in acids…

  • Daphnia Lab Report

    The Effect of pH levels on the Motility of Daphnia in Lake Ecosystems Introduction: The production, transportation, and use of chemicals by chemical industries can result in chemical pollution. This leads to a harmful effect on ecosystems and their balance of life (Linlin, Chen, 2012). The pH levels of aquatic environments are important because it affects the physiology of animals by changing their behaviors. The ion concentrations associated with the water and the organism’s survival can also…

  • Landscape Function Analysis Of Mulloon Home Farm

    including landscape organization assessment (LOA) and soil surface assessment (SSA). Firstly, we set up a 50m transect running directly up and down the slope and mapped patches and interpatches on this transect. We regarded the place where resources could be accumulated as patches, like grass, shrubs, logs or trees. Then we made soil surface assessment by choosing 3 points in each patch type randomly and collecting 11 indicators which can reflect soil quality. Hillslope scale data could describe…

  • Causes Of Tillage Gerdiction

    Tillage is the physical or mechanical agitation of the soil with tools and implements result in good tilth for better germination and subsequent growth of crops. Continuous practice of modifying the state of soil in order to provide favorable conditions for growth of crops is known as tillage addiction. Physical manipulation of soil is intended to destroy weeds, incorporate crop residues and amendments into soil, increase infiltration and reduce evaporation, prepare seedbed and break hard layers…
