Benefits of Biochar

 

biocharIn agricultural fertilization and improvement of soil quality biochar make it an important candidate to significantly contribute to the sustainable development of arid, infertile soils that lack nutrients. The high porosity of biochar along with its additional special features causes increased retention of nutrients and humidity in the soil. Laboratory tests as well as direct agricultural applications demonstrated significant increase of plant growth even with lower water consumption after its use. Biochar will absorb nutrients like a sponge, holding them in the soil near the plants for an incredibly long time. 

      BioChar as a fertilizer Benefits:

  • Significantly improves the quality of soils increasing crop yield
  • Strong antibacterial and anti-parasitic remedy for plants
  • Positive effect on the development of beneficial microorganisms that increase soil fertility
  • Increases the access of oxygen to the plant roots
  • Increases the permeability of the soil, retains moisture
  • Does not contain toxic materials and heavy metals
  • Prevents the washing-out of soil nutrients, highly advised for fields of intense farming during active irrigation
  • Very high porosity rate, absorbing lots of nutrient rich water
  • Decreased use of fertilizers
  • Removes residual toxic chemicals from the soil
  • Delays the release of volatile carbon into the environment
  • Acts as soil ripper

Sustainable biochar is a powerfully simple tool that can significantly enhance soil, retain water, reduce agricultural waste and make soil more fertile.The main benefit between biochar and normal organic materials, such as compost,straw or wood, is they will degrade to CO2 in a short amount of time and complete the carbon cycle. This doesn’t happen to the same extent with biochar, it will last for millennia.
