BioChar

BioChar as the name suggests is biologically made charcoal made using biomass through Pyrolytic process in the absence of oxygen. Biochar is a stable solid, rich in carbon, and can endure in soil for thousands of years. Biochar thus has the potential to help mitigate climate change via carbon sequestration.
Benefits of BioChar
  • Increased Production
  • Carbon Sequestration
  • Significant increase in soil microbes density
  • Retention of nutrients in soil like that for Nitrogen, Phosphorous
  • This leads to less water consumption & moisture retention
  • Regulating the soil temperature
  • Helps in Germination and Root growth
  • Reduction in Greenhouse Gases
Difference Between BioChar, Activated BioChar & VermiCompost

BioChar

The life of BioChar is more than 10 years

BioChar helps in the growth of microbes in Soil overtime which helps in overall productivity improvement.

BioChar helps in higher nutrition retention especially magnesium, phosphate & calcium

Contains organic carbon up to 80% which helps in overall soil quality improvement significantly

Leads to significantly lesser green house emissions

One of the best products for carbon sequestration

Significant improvement in pesticides absorption

Very high moisture retention leading to water conservation

Activated BioChar

Life of Activated BioChar is about 20% lesser than BioChar

Activated BioChar helps in the growth of microbes in the soil in addition to providing basic nutrients

Activated BioChar also helps in nutrition retention but at a lower rate than BioChar

Organic Carbon content is up to 30% which also is great for providing to the soil

Lesser greenhouse emissions than others but more than Biochar

Gives marginal benefits of carbon sequestration

Marginal improvement in pesticides absorption

Marginal improvement in water retention

VermiCompost

Life of VermiCompost is about 4-6 months.

VermiCompost provides basic nutrients to the soil for a short duration and needs to be given regularly

VermiCompost Nutrition retention is for a limited time and is significantly lesser than BioChar

Organic Carbon content is less than 10% and is comparatively much lesser then the other two

Not much effect on Greenhouse emissions

It provides no help in carbon sequestration

Temporary & partial effect in pesticides absorption

Very less moisture retention as compared to BioChar

USAGE

Mix BioChar thoroughly in the soil if making a new pot. In case of an existing plant being used then mix it thoroughly in the top 2-3 inch layer of the soil. Make sure that the particles are not on top and have been mixed thoroughly.

DOSAGE

Suggested use is 50 gms in a standard 8-9 inch pot. The dosage is to be repeated in an interval of 4 months for the first year. The dosage will increase according to the size of the pot or as per the size of the plant to which it is being applied to. 

Frequently asked questions

Is BioChar better than VermiCompost & Organic Compost?


Yes, BioChar is a superior product to VermiCompost & Organic Compost as it helps in the overall improvement of soil quality and not just temporarily provides nutrition to the soil. Additionally, it helps in increasing the microbial activity which will help significantly in plants’ growth and fruiting in long term.




What are the packing Sizes available?


Currently, we have got packing sizes of 5 kg, 10 Kg and 50 kg for the product. How do I order the product?




What are the raw materials used to make BioChar?


There are different raw materials used to make Activated BioChar starting from Agri waste, Coconut shells, waste wood chips etc.




This is a new product which is not available in the market and not many people know about it, is this any good?

What are the benefits of BioChar?


BioChar helps in increasing the soil fertility and help in ability of soil to withstand natural calamities like flood and drought. A comprehensive global use of biochar will help in significant carbon sequestration in the environment.




What are the disadvantages of BioChar?


Although there are numerous positives of BioChar but in some cases it has been found to absord nutrition and water. But this percentage is less than 0.1% which is temporrary phenomenon. It happens beacuse of extremely bad condition of the soil.




Is there a difference between Charcoal & BioChar?


The basic process of both the products is similar but not same. The difference is that Charcoal is made from mostly wood whereas in case of BioChar agri waste is mostly used for production.




How do I activate BioChar?


You don't need to activate BioChar, you can buy activated biochar from us.
