Organism: Brassica napus L. (Canola) Day planted: December 3, 2009 Date of measures: February 4, 2010 Age: 63 Days Type of competition: intraspecific Size of Flats: 325cm 2 Protocol In this experiment different densities of Brassica napus L. (canola) were analyzed to test for variations in plant production. 1. On December 3 rd , 2009 seeds of canola were planted with no particular attention to at three different densities in flats of 325cm 2 : 2 seeds per flat, 20 seeds per flat, 200 seeds per flat. Four flats of each density were labeled and served as replication in this study. Seed germination occurred on December 7 th , 2009. Throughout the growth process all plants received ample watering at all times.

Unformatted text preview: 2. Plants were measured on February 4 th , 2010, at which time they were 63 days old and in the adult stage of their lifecycle. 3. One flat of each density was photographed against a white backdrop at different angles with a meter stick (cm) for size reference. 4. Percent cover was determined by placing the four flats of the same density on the ground, and estimating the amount of soil coverage by looking down at them at a 90 degree angle. This was repeated for each of the three different densities. 5. Cut stems 6. Measure heights 7. Cut leaves off stems 8. Dried at 80 degrees for 24 hours 9. Measure dry weights...
