Many farmers utilize liquid manure from livestock as part of their fertilization process, and biochar can help make it safer and more productive.
Pyrolysis of biosolids has several positive aspects, including the reduction of waste material that has a potential negative impact on the environment and the biochar derived from biochar creates a healthy soil conditioner for your planting.
Learn more about the Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI) and how they evaluate gardening products, including fertilizers and soil amendments, to ensure compliance with certain standards.
Biochar is not a fertilizer, but rather a soil amendment. It has an impressive impact on the health of plants and grass thanks to its many remarkable qualities.
