Biochar Market is the charcoal used as an enhancer for soil properties. Biochar is a very good soil amender that helps in holding carbon, boosting food security, increasing soil biodiversity, and discouraging deforestation.
Agricultural waste is converted into porous charcoal by means of chemical treatment, which helps to retain water and nutrients thereby making it a necessary additive. There are numerous advantages offered by biochar along with its bio-sustainability, such as increasing crop yields, increasing soil fertility for acidic soils, preventing fertilizer runoff and leeching, reducing agricultural pollution, replenishing exhausted or marginal soils with organic carbon, and fostering the growth of soil microbes essential for nutrient absorption.
