Abstract

The purpose of this test was to determine the effect of various pesticides on the Brassica rapa plant. The pesticides used were Carbaryl, Permethrin, Bifenthrin. The hypothesis was that if Brassica rapa is exposed to Carbaryl, the impact will be worst than the rest of the pesticides. The null hypothesis was that no pesticides will have any effect on Brassica rapa. The project was carried out in the greenhouse at Heathwood Hall with a controlled environment. The seeds were subjected to each treatment the day they were planted. The pesticides came in powder form, so they were sprinkled on top then watered. The mean growth for the control group was 29.05 cm, 26.05 cm for Carbaryl, 28.25 cm for Permethrin, and 29.35 for Bifenthrin. An ANOVA Single Variable test was used and it showed that there was no statistically significant difference in the treatments.
