We, at Newleaf Plantation are serious about protecting the environment, we do not use any pesticides (herbicides, fungicides and insecticides)! Thanks to our custom designed irrigation system we are able to reply solely on rain, river and pond water to hydrate our young durian plants. This method of water conservation is extremely beneficial to the future of our planet.
Waste is recycled as mulch in the orchard. This mulch not only helps the soil to retain water, it also helps to balance the soil temperatures from becoming too hot or too cold and even protects sloping land from soil erosion. This type of organic mulch breaks down overtime, providing an environment that encourages the growth of the earthworms and other beneficial insects.
