Montgomery County On the beef farm, corn is grown for cattle feed. The corn is harvested in two ways; shelled corn and corn silage. For my experiment, I wanted to see how corn grows from seeds. For my experiment, I also wanted to see how accurate the seed corn tag on the bag was. On the fuzzy picture it lists a germination rate of 95%. 95% hypothesis Before I started this experiment, I predicted the germination rate would be between 90% and 92%. I predicted this because the bag had stated 95% and I thought that number was a little high. I used an exercise I found in my Corn project book as a guide. I performed two different experiments to compare my answers. Day one On the first experiment, I selected 25 seeds and placed them between 2 paper towels. I wet the paper towels with water and placed them in a Ziploc bag at room temperature. 25 Seeds Day four Day seven I checked the seeds on day four. 22 of the 25 seeds had sprouted. I checked the seeds again on day seven, no additional seeds had sprouted. I conducted a second experiment to verify the results of the first experiment. This time I used 50 seeds. On day five, 44 of the 50 seeds had sprouted. No additional seeds after that sprouted. Day one and Day five Of my second experiment DATA RESULTS 6 Gray=Seeds Sprouted Green=Total Seed 5 4 3 2 1 0 My First Experiment My Second Experiment The temperature and moisture levels conditions simulated were not the same as if the seeds were in a field; however, no one can simulate the weather conditions exactly. In conclusion, the data results from both experiments show 88% seed germination. In my hypothesis, I predicted between 90% and 92%. I predicted a little high. The seed corn bag tag stated 95% germination. This was also high. Using these experiments as my proof, I believe the facts stated on the seed corn bag are not accurate.
