Bacteria mediated denitrification. (Senior Division).

Soil samples contaminated with high levels of nitrate were treated daily with 1/4 gram of a sugar solution- honey, molasses, or sugar, and water to simulate precipitation daily. After one week, each sample was tested for nitrate using a LaMotte test kit. Treated soil samples were found to contain considerably lower levels of nitrate than untreated ones, those treated with honey containing the lowest. However, it was decided that the results are inconclusive due to poor procedural elements.
