Improvement of soil quality and crop yields using the appropriate type of biochar
Biochar is a term used to describe a soil additive which is produced via pyrolysis of plant biomass. Applying biochar to agricultural soils is a practice that is growing in popularity world-wide, and numerous studies (made available through the International Biochar Initiative) have reported that soil quality and agricultural output is enhanced by this practice. The presentation is a brief overview of biochar's properties, its production and potential utility for soil and crop yield improvement.
