One thought on “Effects of Various Irrigation and Mulching Methods on the Average Growth of Raphanus Sativus in Arid Climates

  1. This was a well designed project to answer an interesting question! I was surprised that mulch alone performed the worst, as the addition of mulch to the other irrigation methods improved the radish size. I would also be curious to see the size of the radish bulb at the end of the experiment for each condition. Was the food source size increased, or was it just the vegetative growth above ground? It would also be interesting to repeat this with other fruit and vegetable crops. Great job!
