Dr. Tan's been inspired by the primary tropical rainforest which houses about 50% of all land diversity on earth. What makes the soil here so productive? Its the multiplicity of microbes which act as ideal fertilisers and soil conditioning agent.
He's researching collecting, isolating ideal microbial varieties to make a greener and more effective biofertiliser which will allow for plant diversity to flourish.
