Natural Surroundings

Landform

Tianwei Township is part of the Changhua Plain. It belongs to the old river basin of Jhuoshuei River. The landform slightly tilted towards the northwest starting from the southeast. It’s a flat terrain with a height of 28-34 meters above the sea level. The length that extends vertically across the island is 9.75 kilometers long. On the other hand, the length, which extends horizontally across the island, is 3.38 meters long. This town is about 24.0375 sq. kilometer in area.【Note 2】
 

Soil

Tianwei Township is located in the southeast region of the Changhua Plain. This region used to be the place where the old river course of Jhuoshuei River passed by. The earth has rich soil so this has been a fertilized area for agricultural production. Most of the soil here is classified as the clay loam. It has a high-absorbance. When picking sprouts from the field to plant elsewhere, the root is firmly clung to the soil. It’s likely to create a clay ball, which not easily falls apart. The sprout is durable for long-term transportation, and it has higher chance to stay alive for second-time cultivation.

Temperature

The average annual temperature is around 23℃, which allows for a pleasant local climate. There is only one exception about the weather in Winter. Sometimes, the local temperature will drop drastically because of the cold current. The temperature will rise above 35℃ in Summer sometimes. That’s why the farmers choose to develop the local plants that will survive the local temperature. Or they will apply some equipment (such as the greenhouse...) to help them overcome the weather restriction of such temperature. 【Note 3】

Water

The irrigation system in Tianwei Township introduces its main water from the upstream of the second Babao Reservoir. Yet, the farmers will excavate the underground water to irrigate the field because the water shortage has become a common phenomenon.
