    Plant science practicals

    In association with

    A collection of experiments that cover a number of topics that help students learn and understand the physical and chemical processes that occur in plants. Such as, how water is taken up by plants; how cellulose facilitates passive transport; and the how changes in the concentrations of nutrients in soil, affects plant growth.

    Challenging Plants: Soil Science - Practicals

    In association with

    The nature of soil particles (inorganic and organic) and of soil water affects plant growth and, in particular, the availability of nutrients essential for the growth of quality crops in high yield. An understanding of the media in which plants grow helps scientists to exploit their potential.

    Challenging Plants: Fertilisers - Practicals

    In association with

    Nutrients essential for plant growth are obtained naturally from soil or other growing media. However, supplies become depleted and fertilisers are needed to increase the availability of nutrients to plants. An understanding of chemical changes is used to making fertilisers, often designed to meet specific requirements such as particular nutrient ...
