Competiton occurs when two or more living things need the same resources in an environment. For example, owls compete for mice for food. Radish seeds have a competition for space to grow. We planted a cup with 10 radish seeds inside and in the other cup we planted 80 radish seeds. Which one do you think will grow better or healthier? The one with the 80 radish seeds or the one with 10 radish seeds? I think the one with the 10 radish seeds will grow better because it has less competition.
