Biochar has been in use for thousands of years. It is wood that has been burned without oxygen, locking the carbon into a charcoal form and preventing its release into the atmosphere. Biochar breaks up tough clay soils, and provides a surface for microbial activity. Our biochar is inoculated with the famous EM-1® (Effective Microorganisms®)1 microbial inoculant to improve the structure of your soil naturally. Our biochar is available bagged or in bulk form, and as a fine powder or as chunks. Biochar (wood ash) is also on OMRI’s generic material list for use in organic gardening.
