About us

The combination of accelerating climate change and the growing world population continue to challenge agricultural production. Moreover, the mismanagement of irrigation water and agrochemical inputs degraded soils, polluted water resources, and contaminated the atmosphere. As a result, food and nutritional security became one of the most significant tasks of the present time. Soils are a crucial reservoir of biodiversity and one of the main factors indicative of sustainability. Understanding the factors that control microbial processes involved in biogeochemical cycling is essential for ecosystem sustainability. Knowledge of the complex nature of soil-plant-microbe interactions under abiotic and biotic stresses and their responses to global climate change can potentially offer new strategies to improve soil fertility and plant health.  

The newly established (2020) Uzbek-China Key Lab of Ecobiomes of arid lands at the National University of Uzbekistan in cooperation with the Xinjiang Institute of Ecology and Geography, Chinese Academy of Sciences, aims to enhance connectivity and practical cooperation in field of ecosystem research.


We aim to understand the ecology and biodiversity of plant and soil biomes and to develop innovative solutions that answer challenges for modern agriculture. The laboratory provides soil testing, plant analysis services and fertilizer recommendations to farmers, and landscape specialists. We also offer professional consultation, educational advice and training courses for students, researchers and farmers, and organise regular conferences and events to bring together experts in the field.
