Biochar

Biochar is an effective tool in soil treatment. It is the result of burning biomass, more precisely plants and woods with extremely low oxygen concentration. Thus, it can be clearly distinguished from charcoal, which uses only wood. With the help of biochar, the resistance and fertility of the soil and its crops are significantly increased.

With more Structure to Better Soil

The production of biochar takes place through the process of pyrolysis in which combustion is often carried out at 400-500°C without oxygen. This process creates a porous structure where the biochar has many small holes. This way the internal surface of the soil is increased. As a result, it acts as a kind of "house" or "factory" for microorganisms working to build up humus. In addition, biochar promotes soil fertility by improving the binding of nutrients and preventing their loss. Imagine a super sponge that stores nutrients and water, harbors a productive army of microorganisms, and at the same time removes atmospheric greenhouse gasses, including CO2 and binds them in soil.
