Biochar applications are not limited to the soil. You may have already noted the article by Hans-Peter Schmidt featured in the ‘About biochar – Biochar applications‘ page. This page also lists some of the potential NZ-centric applications that could be considered.

There are a number of ways we could sub-divide application pages depending on interest. We can have separate areas for different agriculture practices (pasture, horticulture, gardening, composting, tree crops, livestock, poultry, urban use). We could include specialist pages on soil remediation, animal health, energy, wood vinegar recovery / use, ‘terra preta’ toilets, emissions management or carbon sequestration.

This page pulls in posts related to all aspects of biochar application in the NZ environment based on the categories and tags assigned to the post.This can be modified if/when any specialist application pages evolve.
