NZASSS Conference program

The provisional program includes a biochar session on Tuesday, 13Dec that identifies eight 10min presentations… sadly all of Australian origins. Many other presentations at this huge event will have overlapping interest with the biochar community. If you are planning to attend, it would be great if you could offer up your services as a roving reporter on biochar interest, and report back on the event.
