A natural soil amendment
A 100% natural and organic soil amendment
Biochar is a fine-grained, highly porous charcoal produced through the torrefaction of sawmill waste, forestland biomass or agricultural residues.
The use of charcoal to improve soils has been part of soil management practices for centuries as charcoal is found in soils around the world as a result of vegetation fires as well as traditional agricultural practices. It has led to the creation of the dark, nutrient rich terra preta ("black earth") soils of the Brazilian Amazon which differ markedly from adjacent soils, in terms of higher fertility and carbon content.
