  • Biochar


    Biochar has many horticultural benefits. It can increase crop yields, sometimes substantially if the soil is in poor condition. It retains moisture, helping plants through periods of drought more easily. Most importantly, it replenishes exhausted or marginal soils with organic carbon and fosters the growth of soil microbes essential for nutrient absorption, particularly mycorrhizal fungi.

    Lots of interesting info from British Biochar Foundation
