Biochar, the secret to the Amazon forest

Biochar was discovered to be the answer to the Amazon forest’s majesty, which is a neutral carbon sink created from the burning of invasive plant species that, when buried, captures energies in the soil for slow release. 

Biochar is a type of charcoal that is produced by heating organic matter (usually agricultural or forestry waste) in a low-oxygen environment. The process, known as pyrolysis, transforms the organic matter into a carbon-rich material that can be used as a soil amendment. Biochar has several benefits for the environment, including improving soil fertility and structure, increasing water retention, and reducing greenhouse gas emissions by sequestering carbon. It has also been shown to reduce the loss of nutrients and contaminants from soil, making it a valuable tool for sustainable agriculture and environmental remediation.

We have a source of pure, finely ground, and neutral Biochar that has lain dormant for a number of years. The biochar is as a result of a decades long, alien invasion forest clean up on a farm in the Eastern Cape, available in 25kg bags at R200/bag in Cape Town. 

We would have to discuss delivery fees, if applicable. 

Used properly, between 3 - 5 days, and you can see the difference.
