Biotechnology science fair project:
Combating the Global Food crisis: Diazotroph Bacteria as a Cereal Crop Growth Promoter

Science Fair Project Information
Title: Combating the global food crisis: Diazotroph Bacteria as a Cereal Crop Growth Promoter
Subject: Biotechnology
Subcategory: Plant biotechnology
Grade level: High School - Grades 10-12
Academic Level: Ordinary
Project Type: Experimental
Cost: Medium
Awards: Grand Prize
Affiliation: Google Science Fair
Year: 2014
Equipment, Materials and Techniques: Temperature controlled incubator, aseptic transfer chamber, 3% hypochlorite solution, natural rhizobia bacteria
Concepts: Plant Growth Promoters
Description: This project investigated the use of diazotroph bacteria as a germination aid for cereal crops. Germination and growth experiments were carried over 11 months. The performance of more than 9,500 seed samples were analyzed, recording over 120,000 manual measurements in 125 experimental sets. Based on extensive experimental results was shown statistically that two strains of Rhizobium bacteria could significantly accelerate the rate of crop germination. These results have significant potential for increasing yields of food crops and reducing losses due to adverse weather conditions. They also offer opportunities for reducing the environmental footprint of agriculture by reducing fertilizer usage.
