Biochar in Vegetable Transplant Production

Plant Transplants  Biochar

Biochar is an organic product produced by the process called pyrolysis, which is the burning of biomass in a limited oxygen environment. In the recent past, agricultural use of biochar has been steadily increasing and attracting tremendous research interest. This project focused on pepper and tomato transplant production in varying concentrations of biochar in soilless greenhouse growing medium. So far results are interesting with biochar reducing nutrient leaching and affecting transplant growth and health.
