REINVIGORATING VIETNAM'S SOILS

Vietnam's Soils and the Challenges

The Problems

Intensive land use, poor conservation practices, and overuse of poor-quality agrochemicals, destroy soil microbes, causing more land unfit for agriculture. 30% of world’s cropland was abandoned in the last 40 years due to soil decline (Pimentel and Burgess, 2013).

The issues listed above have also caused the degradation of desirable soil physical properties and soil organic matter, causing decreased soil water retention capacity and increasing dependence on irrigation.

 

Arable land is shrinking with increasing global population and urbanization, forcing the encroachment on native grassland and forest, contributing to climate change and decreased biodiversity.

 

The interaction of the problems above with the current fertilizer scarcity, calls for science-backed measures to maximize crop and soil natural potentials.

The Solution

Through our biotechnology and expertise, we maximize soil and crop potentials on available arable land (and land unfit for agriculture), combating encroachment on grassland and forests, and reducing biodiversity disruption.

Enhanced microbial growth and activities, enhances soil organic matter, and other desirable soil properties; helping soils to retain more water, improving water use efficiency and conservation.

By stimulating microbial activities and enzymes (vital to nutrient synthesis and recycling), applied fertilizers and tied up nutrients in soil become more available, drastically increasing yields and reducing synthetic fertilizers needs (saving cost and the environment). 

This is a pathway to conserving natural resources (forests and grassland), enhancing biodiversity, conserving water, improving nutrient use efficiency, and ultimately ensuring food security.
