He conducted collection, identification and evaluation of litchi and banana germplasm between 1996 and 2005. Since 2005, he has worked on trials and demonstration in critical technology of litchi and longan production, and the studies on the physiology of floral induction, initiation and differentiation in litchi, longan and other tropical and subtropical fruits, especially the phasic changes in shoot apex, where floral development takes place.
In 2008, he was screened and appointed as the team leader of the litchi and longan programs. Twenty-eight researchers from 24 central and provincial institutions as core members, were coordinated and conducted R & D work along with the production chain, including germplasm evaluation, breeding, soil and water management, pest and disease control, flower and fruit management, orchard machinery, post-harvest, processing and economics. The system identify research programs from the industry demands and secure the process from field to table, from production to consumption, and from research to development. The system also serves as strong technical consultation for the governmental policy-making and seems highly effective and efficient.
