The purpose of our project is to find out the elements found in the solution for the water containing the different solubles, such as salt, sugar and also detergent.
This will help benefit people as there will more growing of crops as the crops will be affected by the different solubles contained in the water, which will help in the feeding of people, as the world’s population is steadily climbing higher and higher, resulting in the solution of the hunger crisis, the elements found in the project will help in growing other plants, therefore making the earth “greener” as the plants will produce more oxygen and take away more carbon dioxide, resulting in an eco-friendly way of growing crops.
Also the increasing growth of crops will result in taking up less space and will result in more land for us to build other buildings, instead of clearing land for the growth of various crops, so that we, as a species can engage more methods of developing our technological side, so that we can learn more about technology and also will help benefit people bearing terminal illnesses as there will be more time and space for the research of the cures for terminal diseases such as cancer, AIDS, etc.
The benefits of more crops will also let more animals to graze on the plants, making them grow bigger or more numerous, the disadvantages of growing more crops is that it will require more extensive research to even begin to notice the slightest change in the growth behaviour/pattern of the crops, which will have to be carefully administered with the exact dosages and even then, the crops might harm human life if they are not treated with the correct procedures.
Such as cleanliness and also there might be human errors, the human errors will result in either risking the life of a human to test it, or to stop production of the crops, like a large-scale shutdown. There will also be a chance of the plant growth to be higher than expected, causing more manpower to harvest the crops before they wilt, and also will require more manpower to plant the seeds as there will be less downtime before the crops grow to adult stage
So that there will be optimal time to harvest the crops and also sow the seeds into the ground for the plants to grow in an optimum condition and minimise the time needed to grow more fresh produce. A faster growing plant will produce whatever it's being grown for more quickly so supply can be increased and since production cost (which includes land cost, water, light if it's indoors, and wages to laborers) would go down if the plant grew faster the cost of the product would also go down for the consumer. The result of this methods will result in the offset of growing crops
There is overall increase in yield of crops mainly due to maintaining physical- chemical properties of soil. Soil fertility is restored by fixing atmospheric nitrogen, encouraging microbial activity (more organic matter) and protecting soil from erosion, salinity and acidity. It helps in controlling insects, pests and soil borne diseases. It also controls weeds. E.g. repeated wheat culture (growing) increases wild oats and phalaris infestation. Similarly growing berseem continuously encourages chicory (kasani) infestation, but an alternate cropping of berseem and wheat helps in controlling kasani as well as oats and phalaris.

Prevent or limit periods of peak requirements of irrigation water. Crops requiring high irrigation if followed by light irrigation, this will not affect or deteriorate the soil physical condition. It facilitates even distribution of labour. Following crop make proper utilization of all resources and inputs. Family and farm labour, power, equipment and machines are well employed thought the year. Farmers get a better price for his produce due to higher demand in local market. So there is regular flow of income over year. Inclusion of crops of different feeding zones (root system) and nutrient requirement could maintain the better balance of nutrient in soil. Growing crops of different root depths avoids continuous depletion of nutrients form same depth. E.g. deep rooted crops take nutrients from deeper zone and during that period upper zone get enriched. Similarly, surface feeding roots take nutrients from upper zone when lower zone get enriched. So growing same crop without rotation results in loss of soil productivity utilized the nutrients from entire soil mass and cost of cultivation is reduced.(Nuffield Council of Bioethics(2008))
Advantages of raising short duration crops (catch crop/ vegetables) when long season crops cannot be raised due to some reasons, such as having an infestation of pests intruding into their
crop fields and also if there might be a disease that causes all the plants to die.
Factors to be considered while planning a crop rotation: growing different crop is very beneficial, but sometimes the desired crops cannot be grown because of certain governing factors (soil and climate), irrigation, availability bullock and other powers, market facilities and type of farming. Many U.S. farmers who grow genetically engineered (GE) crops are realizing substantial economic and environmental benefits -- such as lower production costs, fewer pest problems, reduced use of pesticides, and better yields -- compared with conventional crops, says a new report from the National Research Council.(My agricultural information bank(2011).)
More informed customers, because they need to make more informed decisions in regard to nutrition, agriculture and science. Less pesticide is needed to be used due to insect pest resistant plants. More economically friendly as pesticides do not go into the air, soil, and water (especially freshwater supplies). Their production hazards to the environment also decreases. Decrease in costs of growing and farming, due to the reduced use of pesticides. Higher crop yields will equal to higher chances of earning and also the will result in benefits. (TutorVista(2009)
Farmers have more income, which they could spend on such things as, for example, the education of their children. Less deforestation needed to feed the worlds growing population (UN projections say that the world population will reach 8.15 billion compared to 6.18 billion in year 2000). This decreases carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, which in turn slows global warming. Decrease in food prices due to lower costs and higher yield. As people in poor countries spend over half of their income on food alone, lower food prices mean an automatic reduction of poverty. Less starvation in the world due to decreased food prices. More nutritious. This has been proven and tested many times. Rigorous testing of ALL GMO crops and products. This makes GMOs much safer than organic (the traditional) crops. ALL GMOs that are sold in the market, due to the strict tests. If the slightest chance of health hazard, a GMO is NOT allowed to enter the markets.(HubPages(2013))( by Csanad)
