The population of human beings is increasing rapidly; therefore the food supply must also be increased. In this research, microorganisms will be killed to observe the effect it has on plant growth. By killing the microorganisms in the soil, the rate of plant growth will increase. Cups of soil will be placed in the microwave in order to kill the microorganisms. Then the seeds will be placed into the soil. The purpose of conducting this research is to determine whether soil without microorganisms is more beneficial to plants than soil with microorganisms. Microorganisms are already contained within the soil, consequently, no additional substances are required for to production of plants at a higher rate. Through this experiment, the rate of plant growth may increase while also saving resources.
