Biochar is a carbon rich form of charcoal specifically designed for soil application to improve plant growth and health.
Biochar is a very stable substance that is not broken down in soils, offering long-term soil benefits. It naturally alters the physical nature of soils to increase nutrient availability and improve root development, whilst balancing soil moisture levels.
Enriched Biochar Turf Improver contains high concentrations of multiple strains of mycorrhizal fungi and antagonistic trichoderma, along with actinomyces bacteria from wormcasts and trace minerals from seaweed. The product is a dry granular material with a particle size range of between 0 - 5mm.
Biochar is highly porous and provides a permanent infrastructure for the colonisation of beneficial microorganisms. Biochar also alters the physical nature of soil to increase the water holding capacity and encourage higher nutrient retention, reducing leaching and irrigation requirements. Other benefits to soil health include reductions in acidity improvements of the cation exchange capacity; and efficiency of fertilisers – all of which cause an increase in plant vitality and resilience.
