Biochar is a carbon rich, charcoal like material produced from biomass. It’s been used for thousands of years as a soil conditioner and is now re-emerging as a useful material for environmental remediation and carbon storage.
In agriculture, biochar can help restore degraded soils by improving both biotic and abiotic characteristics. Adding it to soils at rates as low as 1 ton per hectare can help stimulate the soil microbiome and increase cation exchange capacity while retaining both water and valuable nutrients.
