Event Description

Phil Marsh will discuss production systems and the science and applications behind Biochar carbon sequestering and nutrient production. Composting can improve poor soils by 66% but by adding biochar poor soils can be improved by 126%. Biochar sequesters carbon from the atmosphere and the final product, when added to soils, can change marginal lands to productive lands in rapid and reasonable amounts of time.

FREE event.
