BRINGING BIOCHAR TO THE PLAINS
Cultivating Soil & Sustainability
Adding biochar to your gardens can boost yields. From increased microbial activity, increased water holding capacity, improving nutrient up take, and reducing fertilizer needs there are a wide variety of benefits. New research even suggests adding biochar can increase cold tolerance of some plants.
Reclamation and Remediation
Utilizing biochar for these types of projects has many advantages including the ability to stop contamination from leeching into ground water to reestablishing vegetation and reducing soil compaction. Biochar has the ability to bind toxins in the soil as well as provide a much higher chance of vegetating plants under poor soil conditions. Applications include highway right of ways, road and O&G sites, mines, industrial sites, etc.
There are many uses for biochar on farms and ranches from use as a seed coating, soil amendment, manure management, and even a nutritional supplement to reduce methane emissions.
From lawns to golf courses and sports fields biochar is gaining in popularity for it's ability to provide a natural and chemical free way to create healthy turf while reducing water inputs and fertilizer runoff.
Biochar has some unique properties including massive surface area that allow it to capture heavy metals, fertilizers, and other toxins from our creeks, ponds, and lakes as well as prevents this contamination from getting into our ground water.
Biochar has shown some amazing benefits for trees in recent research from urban trees to shelter belts biochar provides benefits such as increased drought resistance and nutrient uptake.
