Mixing with Organic Manure
Cow Dung Manure
EnviroChar™ is a special kind of carbon-rich charcoal that has multiple benefits to the plant and the environment.
Improves Soil Fertility
Soil is a living ecosystem. It should be teaming with microbial life. There are lots of beneficial bacteria and fungi that are essential to their health. They play a vital role in the nutrient cycle that is fundamentally important to all life on Earth. The presence of biochar helps these microbes flourish. This is down to its uniquely complex and porous structure, which provides their ideal habitat. They thrive in the multitude of tiny nooks and crannies that cover their surface.
Increases Crop Yields
Here again, biochar’s spongy, porous structure comes into play. It attracts nutrients and then stores them, making them available to plants when needed. This is one reason why soil containing biochar is more nutrient-rich. It has lower rates of nutrient depletion during the growing season. At harvest time, this results in higher plant density and crop yields.
Better Water Retention And Drainage
EnviroChar™ porous structure means it retains water and improves soil’s ability to hold moisture. As a result, it can keep beneficial soil bacteria and fungi alive during a long, hot summer. It also helps with drainage. Its porosity means it acts like millions of tiny sponges in the soil, holding onto any excess water. The soil can later benefit from this stored water when it has dried.
Reduction of Soil Acidity
Soil acidity is a significant concern. Growing most crops or plants in soil with a pH value of 5.5 or less is difficult because nutrients leach quickly from such grounds. The ideal pH value is between 5.5 and 7. That’s the range in which the bacteria that change and release nitrogen from organic matter (and fertilisers) best operate. PH can also affect the structure of the soil, especially in clay soils. In the optimum pH range, clay soils are granular and easy to work with. But if the ground is either highly acidic or alkaline clay, it tends to become sticky and hard to cultivate.
Adsorption of Soil Pollutants
EnviroChar™ can also potentially repair soils contaminated with toxic heavy metals. Its vast surface area and porous nature mean it can ‘adsorb’ or hold onto metals and other pollutants. Its alkalinity is also a factor here. Plant-toxic metals, like aluminium, can be dissolved in acidic soils with pH levels below 5.0. Biochar’s tendency to de-acidify soils also contributes to their decontamination.
Increases Resistance Power to Plants Against Diseases
There is growing evidence to suggest that biochar has a role in improving plant resistance to some pathogens. Scientists are still trying to work out how this happens, but it seems it’s connected to the boosted microbial activity in the rhizosphere, which is the soil directly around plant roots.
Catching And Storing Carbon
EnviroChar™ captures and fixes carbon in the soil. It is also highly stable and will stay in your soil long-term, meaning you only need to add it once. The ancient people of the Amazon basin were the first to add charcoal to the soil, and the ‘terra preta’ or ‘black soils’ they bio-engineered thousands of years ago remain stable and carbon-rich to this day.
