This study explores the response and benefits of the medicinal plant Scutellaria baicalensis to the ecological environment under different planting modes, aiming to gain a deeper understanding of its ecological characteristics and the impact of planting modes. This study analyzes the ecological characteristics of Scutellaria baicalensis, with a focus on its growth environment requirements. Further investigation into the impact of different planting modes on the ecological environment, including traditional cultivation, organic farming, and comparison between hydroponics and soil cultivation, is conducted. In arid regions, hydroponic cultivation demonstrates advantages, albeit with higher costs, while soil cultivation proves economically viable with broad adaptability. This study provides a detailed analysis of the benefits of Scutellaria baicalensis in the ecological environment, encompassing medicinal component content, soil improvement effects, and ecosystem services. Organic farming has a positive impact on increasing medicinal component content and improving soil quality. This study discusses continuous planting management and future prospects, emphasizing eco-friendly planting techniques and the practice of sustainable agriculture. Future research directions are proposed, including in-depth studies on the interaction between Scutellaria baicalensis and ecosystems, and exploration of new concepts and technologies for eco-friendly agriculture. This study offers a comprehensive overview of Scutellaria baicalensis cultivation, providing valuable insights for the sustainable development of agriculture and environmental conservation in the future.
