He have promoted horticulture crops such as litchi, mango, banana, and parkia in his village with organic management of soil fertility and used cover crops to reduce weed growth and soil erosion. Under the leadership of Mr. Naiding, the community has planted various forest species in fallow land, water catchment area and community conserved area and learned the importance of benefit sharing mechanisms.
