Effects of pesticides and fertilizer on different plant species in greenhouse tests

banner_lisaressl

Currently I evaluate the results of my experimentally study in the framework of my Diploma thesis, which investigates the effects of pesticides and fertilizer on different plant species in greenhouse tests. Therefor I tested the sensitivity of seven different herbs and grasses in a pesticide and in a pesticide and fertilizer treatment.
To examine the effect of competition on plants I had different test systems. On the one hand I tested plants in monoculture and on the other hand plants in a plant community. Additionally there were tested two different plant growth stages, young plants (BBCH- stage 12- 14) and plants in an older growth stage in both test systems to estimate the impact of a pesticide on different growth stages.
