Microbial farming for habitat recovery in the mountainous slopes of South Taiwan

Microbial farming for habitat recovery in the mountainous slopes of South Taiwan-1

In the degraded mountainous slopes of South Taiwan, Professor Tzen-Yuh Chiang's team aims to promote habitat recovery through microbial farming. Microbial farming is a sustainable farming method that uses microorganisms to restore habitats, promote crop quality, and support plant growth, with an emphasis on enhancing the health of crops and luring organisms back to ecosystems.

To support the goal of sustainable ecosystems, a kind of farming strategy utilising microbes is used. Unlike pesticides and chemical fertilisers, microbial farming promotes the root health of crops and draws numerous creatures back to the ecosystems.

Researchers apply engineering techniques to promote habitat recovery by using soil profiling of slopes of nearby farms. These engineering techniques include controlling underground water, which improves slope stability and the efficiency of water recycling.

When assisting slope ecosystems with engineering techniques in their recovery, it is important to consider the soil structures and subsurface water. 

Other methods of accelerating habitat recovery are through the revegetation of native plants and a diversity of microbes that can interact with plant roots.

The slopes are stabilised with vegetation using sustainable engineering techniques to help the habitat recover. It was discovered that many species have robust roots that can boost the soil's adhesion forces.

To improve the hydrologic system and prevent erosion and slope collapse, adequate water channels are also implemented.

DGB Group focuses on protecting habitats, increasing biodiversity, developing a market for ecosystem restoration offsets, and reducing the environmental impact of businesses and individuals.
