The experiment was done to test how the amount of fresh water affect the growth of the wheat plant. Wheat is an important commercial crop grown in mostly all the parts of the world. There are many different products which are the product and by-product of the wheat plant. (Majsztrik et al.2017) So, if the yield of the wheat plant increases than it is going to benefit the farmers and also the consumers. The experiment was based on the hypothesis that, if the amount of water is decreased the height of the plant will also decrease. The results supported the hypothesis. So, we can say that if the amount of water the wheat grass gets during its growth is improved with the different techniques of irrigation, then the production of…show more content…
Materials and Methods To perform this experiment we used two pots, wheat seeds, Centimeter measuring tape or ruler, labels(control and experimental) to identify different pots, water, misting bottle, compass used to know the specific direction, soil, wood sticks used for supporting the long leaves of wheat grass, and thread to fence the wheat grass. We took two pots and filled soil in each of them. Then we planted twelve seeds of wheat. During this process, the sowing distance (spacing) between the seeds must be present. The plants required careful supervision to ensure careful controlled variables. Therefore, we decided that one of us will take the plant home. To water the plant we used a misting bottle that was used to spray equal amount of water in both experimental and control group in starting days meaning the first day until the fourth day. After the fourth day, the control group was watered every day and experimental group every two days. Before the plants were watered the moisture content was determined by touching by fingers. (If the soil was moist than usual, meaning more water was present in the soil, the plant would not receive any additional watering. However, due to the perfect weather conditions, this was never required. The experiment was followed as planned). For optimal growth of both plants, they were kept in direct sunlight and were placed in the following direction, 110 degrees east. After one month, the plant 's height was
