The large proportion of sandy soils of Thua Thien Hue, in Central Vietnam, present a particular habitat for soil-inhabiting organisms among which earthworms represent close to 70% of total biomass. This study identified relationships between the characteristics of soil and earthworms. Our inventories yielded the presence of seven species of earthworms belonging to the families Glossoscolecidae, Megascolecidae and Microchaetidae. These were: Pontoscolex corethrurus, Glyphidrilus papillatus, Pheretima rodericensis, Pheretima danangana, Pheretima sp., Perionyx excavatus, and Lampito mauritii. Those of the Microchaetidae were present in acid soils with a high rate of silt and clay. Species in the other families were associated with poor but less acid sandy soils. This study also showed that the number of P. corethrurus was significantly higher in orchards while L. mauritii was significantly more common in soils with cultures other than rice. The species G. papillatus was significantly more abundant in fallow and was the only species found in this habitat. Highest earthworm diversity (Shannon-Wiener index(H=0.97)) was found in crops like manioc and sweat potatoes rather than in rice. [less ▲]

Central Vietnam is composed of two contrasting topographic areas parallel to the coastline: mountains in the West and lowlands in the East where most of the population is concentrated. Sandy soils are largely dominant in the cultivated area in this narrow strip along the sea. Typical constraints of these soils are chemical infertility and acidity, excessive drainage capacity, low organic matter content, associated with particular climate limitations: heavy rain, floods and droughts during certain periods. In the paper, we described a detailed survey among 145 households in villages from the 4 districts of the coastal area of the Thua Thien Hue Province. Existing practices and the socio-economic situation are evaluated and selected pilot farmers are involved in the research of optimal practices. Soil samples (300) and organic matter samples (95) are collected during this survey. The partners of the research include the Hue University of Agriculture and Forestry, the National Institute for Soils and Fertilizers in Vietnam, the Faculty of Agricultural Sciences of Gembloux, and the Catholic University of Louvain in Belgium.
