ABSTRACT
A study on the different nutrients present in “hugas-bigas” was conducted. Pechay (Brassica pekinensis) plants were divided into five groups. The first group was watered with 100 percent concentration of the first washing, the second group with 50 percent concentration of the first washing, the third group with 100 percent concentration of the second washing, the fourth group with 50 percent concentration of the second washing, and the fifth with tap water. The “hugas-bigas” was also tested for the presence of nitrogen and phosphorus, as well as soil and water pH. Observations of plant growth showed that the 50% concentration of the second washing contributed to the highest growth of pechay plants. The first washing of “hugas-bigas” had a 31.9 percent Nitrogen concentration while the second washing had an 18.2 percent concentration. READ MORE
