Teak production is a significant agricultural activity in tropical regions and therefore has an impact on their ecosystems. The team worked with Universidad Tecnológica Oteima to investigate how teak production influences the ecosystem in the Batipa area, determine means to reduce teak’s negative ecological impact, and maintain sustainable teak production revenue. The team conducted research through interviews, surveys, image analysis, and compilation of relevant data. The research revealed that teak has the greatest ecological impact during stages of the production process involving vegetation reduction. To address the issues with teak, recommendations for crop size, crop planting timing, and clearing practices were produced.
