Lack of data
It has been several weeks, and we have yet to see any sprouting.

I think that organic fertilizer is the way to go because it is full of minerals that help plants grow better. Do you think that farmers with livestock would be at an advantage with an abundent supply of fertilizer?

Hey, this experiment seems very interesting. I agree with your prediction that the ferilizer will help the seeds germinate faster and a greater number will germinate. Fertilizers usually contain the nutrients needed for the seeds to use so that they reach dormancy at a faster rate and therefore germinate faster.
keep up the good work!

Hey, I thought your experimental question was very interesting. I'm not sure if you know right know but components differ between organic and inorganic fertilizers? Once you know what are the components of the fertilizers it is easier to understand what is ACTUALLY effecting the growth of your sprouts. Just an interesting point I thought you might want to look into.
Keep up the good work!

Greetings from Your Scientist
I'm happy to learn that your team is beginning to work. This is my second year with Planting Science, and I'm looking forward to hearing about you and your project.
I am a professor in the Department of Plant Sciences at the University of California, Davis. Davis is a small city about 13 miles east of Sacramento, surrounded by tomato fields and some rice paddies. The main "industry" in Davis is the university, which has 31,000 students.
Good luck with your research project.
