Abstract:
This investigatory project was conducted to test the affectivity of organic and synthetic fertilizers when apply on okra plant. It also aims to test whether, which is better to use between the two fertilizers. In order to conduct the study we have used okra seeds, polyethylene bag and cemetery soil as organic fertilizer, synthetic fertilizer, and black soil, labeled it as setup A (Organic Fertilizer) setup B (Synthetic Fertilizer). Then we observed the changes in the plant for 1 week. After several days, we observed some changes in the plant like the increasing number of its height and leaves.
We therefore conclude that the organic fertilizer we used is better than the synthetic fertilizer because it provides faster growth of the plant.

Background of the study:
Today’s generation, people, specifically farmers, usually used fertilizers to their plants. Plant’s needs fertilizer to absorb their required nutrients in order to grow faster and healthy. Fertilizers are broadly divided into organic fertilizers, and inorganic fertilizers. Organic fertilizers are composed of organic plant or animal matter, while the inorganic fertilizers are the commercial…...

...Investigatory Project Pila Conica: A Specie Fighting for its Survival- A Bio-Index Outlook The Pila conica, also known as the native apple snail, grow widely in our wetlands. This was a very good source of protein among farmers before. The presence of its alien counterpart, the Pomacea canaliculata, caused for its rapid extinction. The core purpose of this research is to determine which species has the highest biodiversity in six randomly –selected areas guided by the hypothesis that both species have the same biodiversity. In the experimentations, the researcher first gathered the materials needed. Then, the researcher selected qualified experimental sites and finalized it through fishbowl method. The researcher then counts the species in each experimental site. The researcher did this twice for more accurate results. Two-pair group designs were used in recording data. The researcher then compared results using the t-test. Finally, a generalization was made. The researcher computed a t value of 5.94 and 11.02 in the first and second sub-problem respectively. Both t values were significant at 5% level of probability when the degree of freedom is equivalent to 10. The results have shown above merely shows the large biodiversity of Pomacea canaliculata in our wetlands. This means that the native apple snails were really deprived of their habitat, food and other resources because of the presence of Pomacea canaliculata. The researcher recommends further......

...Introduction The investigatory project designs to help indirectly the common people on the use of indigenous floral resources such as Alstonia Scholaris that serves as a material to regulate and inhibit biotic potential of the individual. 1.1 Background of the Study The country’s current population is estimated at 93 million people (NSO Annual Report: 2010) where about 65 percent are living in urban area and experience poverty due to the usual family practice of giving birth. Pro-RH Bill lawmakers have presented the effective measures to control the growing population and provided alternative ways to maintain reproductive health and plausible actions to that program. Amidst all the programs, poor families are seen and cannot sustain the basic necessities of their children and depriving them from enjoying the fullness what is due to for the kids. Young women whose ages range from 14-25 often experience fast hormonal secretions that usually associated with active and rapid biotic potential. Early sexual maturity becomes a primordial factor for fertility and early teenage pregnancy. This then is the scenario that strive the researchers to conduct experiment that provide information on the use of Alstonia Scholaris as a viable material for controlling population. 1.2 Statement of the Problem The project undertaken by the researchers on the Alstonia Scholaris extract as applied to “rabbit” sought to answer the following questions: 1. What is the effect of Alstonia...

...Abstract: The researchers aimed to develop a new product that will benefit the students like us. To this objective, our team comes up with the idea of creating glue based from milk. Glue has been an important material at home, at school and at office. Most of the commercially available glue is claiming to be non-toxic. However, we are still uncertain of this claim since they contain preservatives that may harm both the user and the environment Casein, a protein obtained from milk, has been long proven to play an important role in the production of glue. It can be obtained from milk by means of adding vinegar into the milk. The curd formed from the reaction is mixed with baking soda. The produced glue from milk may vary in consistency depending upon the amount of milk, vinegar, water and baking soda used. Other research conducted claims that glue made from milk casein is waterproof and can be used for bottle labeling and cigarette packaging .The product produced by our team is cheap and effective. Students can replicate our procedures to create their own milk glue. Chapter 1 Introduction The scientific name of glue is “Cyanoacrylates”. Glue is the chief topic in this investigatory project.

...investigatory Project The Feasibility of Saltwater as an Alternate Source of Energy Chapter I Introduction A. Background of the Study Philippines is a country that is surrounded by water. Saltwater is very abundant in our country; so, this study tries to find more uses of the saltwater. In this study, saltwater is used as a battery of a light bulb to prove that it can be a source of energy. This will possibly help solve the energy crisis that our country is suffering now. A compound can produce electric energy when it has enough oxygen in it. Saltwater is a kind of a compound that can possibly produce energy. Hydrogen Peroxide (H2O2) is also used in this study, to have more oxygen in the compound. Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) is a very pale blue liquid which appears colorless in a dilute solution, slightly more viscousthan water. It is a weak acid. It has strong oxidizing properties and is therefore a powerful bleaching agent that is mostly used for bleaching paper, but has also found use as a disinfectant, as an oxidizer, as anantiseptic, and in rocketry (particularly in high concentrations as high-test peroxide or HTP) as a monopropellant, and in bipropellantsystems.[1] The oxidizing capacity of hydrogen peroxide is so strong that the chemical is considered a highly reactive oxygen species. Hydrogen peroxide is naturally produced as a byproduct of oxygen metabolism, and virtually all organisms possess enzymes known asperoxidases, which harmlessly and...
