Biochar Soil Amendment: Improve Soil Quality For Plant Growth

When it comes to improving your soil, there are quite a few popular ways to do it, including the addition of compost and mulch.

But a newer approach using a biochar soil amendment has become increasingly popular for its positive impacts on not only the soil but also the environment.

Here are just a few benefits of using biochar:

  • Holds water like a sponge, where plant roots can access it when they need it
  • Helps conserve plant nutrients by storing them and making them readily available when plants need them
  • Strongly resists compaction in soil, keeping channels open for water, air, and root movement
