An investigation was carried out on the ability of two types of fertilizer; agrolyser micronutrient and NPK (nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium)-macronutrient in inducing phytoplankton growth for sixteen days under laboratory conditions. The parameters studied were abundance, species diversity and occurrence of the phytoplankton. Twelve 14 L plastics tanks labeled A, B, C and D was used. Each letter represented a fertilizer treatment (three replicates): A, 0.27 g agrolyser; B, 200 g NPK; C, 200 g… Expand
