PLart – Part 1, Day 4

Field trip today! We went few kilometers form the Campus, where live experiments are done. In each block there is a different variety of wheat, or a mixture of two different varieties. Which one will give better yield?

In the field next to our another experiment were carried by a different team: what if we sow clover togheter with wheat?

But there is also a secret mission this time: the team have to record a video for the promotion of a European Project they are working on. The researcher’s job is also this one!

We also observed the behaviour of different weeds that were surrounding the fields: they can decide wheter to spread through the underground, occupying a wide space, or bring energies to the top, and create seeds that are going to be dispersed. But the question is: how do they decide that?
