Mung and Nitrogen (AIG IRP)

Stage 1: Engage

You and your family decide to become “more green” and grow your own food. Before you start your garden you want to know more about nitrogen-based fertilizers and the impact they have on plants and the environment.  You decide to experiment to see how nitrogen based fertilizers affect the growth of plants and algae growth in ponds due to runoff of fertilizers. You also want to let others in your area know what your results are in order to educate them on the pros/cons of using fertilizers since we are all part of one world and synergistic reactions can amplify environmental problems.
