Geochemical Composition of MGS-1 Martian Regolith Simulant and the Effects of Electroconductivity on Germination of Brassica rapa Fast Plants
The purpose of this study is to examine the impact of electroconductivity-adjusted Martian Regolith Simulant (MGS-1) on the germination of Brassica rapa. Regolith electroconductivity (EC) conditions of 0.5, 1, 1.5, 2, 2.5, and 3mS/cm were examined. While none of the final percent germinations were significantly different from each other, there was a trend towards higher germination rates at lower regolith ECs. The highest percent germination was found at 1.0mS/cm.
