Canada regulates on biochar

Biochar applications to the NZ soil are not currently controlled in any way (as far as I know). This is not the case in a growing number of countries and jurisdictions. I am aware that there are rules or controls in Europe and parts of Australia that may govern how bichar is sold and/or applied.

This new information from Lloyd in Canada high-lights how this issue is evolving there…

Regulation on biochar has not been addressed in NZ and with little activity and no engagement between govt. agencies and industry on the subject, I guess its a fair way off yet.
