Abstract

This project researches a deeper look into how runoff affects plant growth. The researchers have tested how different types of runoff can hinder the height of a plant, while comparing it to the same type of plant that contains no runoff. The researchers knew that this topic has been studied before, but found it interesting and intriguing to do their own research, and find their own results. The researchers wanted to find ways to help the environment and plants around them. The project was tested by growing plants in a suitable environment and measuring each plant's heights. The researchers were looking for a way to prove how much harm the world today has affected nature all around our community.
