Key Laboratory of Agro-ecological Processes in Subtropical Region, which established in  2005, aims to improve agricultural production, land management and environmental quality by developing  applied technologies; and to be a training and  demonstration  base for extension of these applied technologies in other subtropical areas.  

The  laboratory  is mainly  oriented towards: (1) the assessments  of  soil  erosion ,  nutrient losses  and balance, agro-economy and environment; (2) developing the key technology to improve nutrient management with promoted  efficiency, to  reduce environmental impacts, and to develop  approach to  apply AEZ technologies; (3) improving  land-use  and  management , with  applied technology  for  bio- remediation  of  degraded soil and ecosystems;  (4) developing  applied  technologies  for improving crop production through increasing the ability of the  main  crops  (rice and maize) to  resist  stresses (chilling, water-mergence, drought) and animal production with safe quality, reducing environmental impacts through the  application  of  new  feedstuff  resource  and improvement of hilly grassland in the subtropical region of China.
