Figure 2. Pepper (A) and tomato (B) shoots of plants grown in containers made of soy plastic (left) and polypropylene (control, right) then transplanted and grown in a garden plot for five weeks with the production container crushed and buried in the soil near the plant root zone (see scale bar).

Figure 2. Container/plant units of marigold grown in three soy-based plastic container treatments and one petroleum-based plastic container treatment under greenhouse-production conditions for 5 weeks. Units are labeled to indicate the container material used for each treatment. All units received the same fertilizer regime, which was chosen to optimize growth and health of plants in the control-container treatment.
