Soil Microbiology, Bio-fertility and Bio-organic Fertilizer

This research group concentrates on the managements of soil microbial communities and populations, the behavior of beneficial microorganisms with different functions, the interaction mechanisms between plant roots and microorganisms, the bio-synthesis of functional substances in different microorganisms, and the development of biotechnology, bioprocesses and equipments for converting agricultural wastes to value-added organic-based fertilizers.
