Why are Coffee grounds are good for the use of soil?
Details of proposal (See guidance notes)
Using coffee grounds in soils up to 35% by volume coffee grounds will improve soil structure over the short-term and
over the long term. With the usage of coffee grounds, rates will sustainably improve abilities and will cancel the need
for chemical usage for plant essential elements. Chemicals such as pesticides and petroleum.
In my research I will conduct an experiment with nine plants total in three groups. One group no coffee grounds.
One group 50/50 split of the coffee grounds and regular soil. The third group all coffee grounds. There will be
three plants in each group and I will monitor for eight weeks. Regular soil can be contaminated with all sorts of
chemicals such as oil, gasoline or pesticides. With chemicals like these in the soil some of the chemical fertilizers can
cause water pollution and increased air pollution. With coffee grounds I will see if the plants grow healthier in that
environment, instead of with regular soil.
