Micro-algae are organisms that can grow in aquatic environments and use light and carbon dioxide (CO2) to create biomass. Researches showed that Micro-algae biomass can be used as bio-fertilizer.
My mission is : to find which plants in the world are best suited to arid climates and to arid soil that was treated using the Micro-algae biomass.
This is my approach on how to accomplish my mission:
I' m into collecting chemical characteristics data of the soil , chemical characteristics data of the micro-algae biomass and other environmental factors like the temperature, rainfall and humidity of this environment. I want to use this data to determine whether a given plant can survive (adapt) in this environment. So I want to compare this environment (arid + Micro-algae biomass applied) characteristics (N, P, K, Temps, humidity....) to the minimum growing conditions of the given plant .
My problem is : How to determine that minimum growing conditions of a given plant in terms of the needed nutrients (N, P, K) , Temperature, water etc...?
I'm open to any biology/math resources and any other inspirations or approaches.
