The University of Limerick biochar trials continue on 2 crops (Radish and Lettuce), 3 soil types and 3 biochars.
Its looking like this will be one of our wettest summers in many years.(june already is the wettest summer on record). One of the consequences of all this heavy rain is water logged soils and leaching of nutrients, which results in poorer growth.
Biochar can alleviate these two issues by improving drainage and slow down the rate of leaching.
Check Ed Revill an organic grower to see what he has to say about Biochar. Also check the link below to get an insight to the world of biochar production whilst you cook and heat water.
Biochar plus now available through the Seed Savers web site.
