Sow With Gypsum; Grow With Gypsum
Abstract:Traditionally, soil is made fertile by using fertilizer and/or manure. This project explores using gypsum as a soil conditioner to enhance plant growth. Various plants were grown with gypsum, manure, and fertilizer, and heights were compared. Water runoff samples were tested for pH and nitrogen levels. It was concluded that using gypsum as a soil conditioner is an environmentally friendly alternative to using traditional fertilizers!
