Horticultural charcoal is a great soil amendment that can also be referred to as biochar. Recent studies show that this ancient farming method still has the ability to improve crop production while also reducing atmospheric carbon dioxide.
Composting with Biochar
Composting is a centuries old process used to increase the soil organic matter and get important nutrients to your plants. Use biochar in the composting process to reduced nitrogen loss, increased microbial activity, reduce odor and reduce the time needed for a mature compost product.
Activated charcoal (also known as activated carbon or biochar) is made from the same thermal process as regular charcoal, but the gases produced during the process are not allowed to condense back on the char. For many, the activated charcoal in biochar blends is the key to gardening success.
