WHAT IS BIOCHAR?

Biochar is a special type of charcoal made from cooking organic material at high temperatures in the absence of oxygen. This process creates a carbon-rich product that is extremely porous with massive amounts of surface area – essentially a blank carbon sponge. As a soil amendment, this sponge retains water and nutrients as well as provides a home for beneficial micro-organisms to thrive.

Benefits of BioChar

  • Sequesters carbon in the soil, mitigating climate change
  • Premium raw biochar can supercharge your soil with 85% organic carbon
  • 100% natural soil conditioner for healthier plants
  • The benefits to the soil can last hundreds of years
  • Responsibly made with 100% wood waste

 

Uses For BioChar

Agricultural

There are many uses for biochar on farms and ranches. From use as a seed coating, soil amendment, manure management, and even a nutritional supplement for livestock that provides a variety of benefits.

Turf

From lawns to golf courses and even to sports fields, biochar is gaining in popularity for its ability to provide a natural and chemical free way to create healthy turf, all while reducing water inputs and fertilizer runoff.

Gardens

Adding biochar to your gardens will boost yields. From increased microbial activity, increased water holding capacity, improving nutrient uptake, and reducing fertilizer needs, there are a wide variety of benefits. New research even suggests adding biochar can increase the cold tolerance of some plants.

Storm Water

Biochar has some unique properties including massive surface area that allow it to capture heavy metals, fertilizers, and other toxins from our creeks, ponds, lakes, and ground water.

Reclamation & Remediation

Biochar has the ability to stop contamination from leeching into ground water, to reestablish vegetation, and reduce soil compaction. It binds with toxins in the soil to provide a higher chance of plant vegetation under poor soil conditions. Applications include highway right of ways, road and O&G sites, mines, industrial sites, etc.

Trees

From urban trees to shelter belts, biochar has shown some amazing benefits for trees in recent research. It provides benefits such as increased drought resistance, survival rates and nutrient uptake.

Application Rates

Rates vary by soil type, but a good rule of thumb for most applications is for biochar to make up around 2-10% of the soil used by your plants’ roots. For pots, mix biochar evenly with soil. For flower beds and gardens focus on the top 6 inches of soil. For yards, it is best to apply to the top 3 inches of soil before planting or after aerating for existing lawns. For trees, it’s best to add to the soil as seedlings or put directly under the root ball when planting, but can also be applied to existing trees by spreading on the surface or by drilling holes around the drip line and filling with biochar. The following application rates are for BioChar at a 6″ depth.
