Applications begin in February 2010

January 18, 2010

On 12th February, a truck load of biochar was delivered to 8 new field sites. To date biochar has been incorporated into soil into 3 sites, and pot trials (see post) have been set up in a 4th site. In most cases rows planned for vegetable growing have been selected randomly for different treatments in each location. Application rates of between 10 and 60 tonnes/ha equivalent have been used, and crops include morning glory, lettuce, cabbage and melons.

Over the next few weeks plots will be set up in the remaining locations.
