Paddy rice trial set up 02.06.2010

Biochar trial plots were prepared for rice to be planted. Rice is to be soaked for 24 hours then seeded directly onto the plot in around one weeks time. Six plots (5m x 5m), three control and three amended with 40t/ha biochar were set up in a latin square layout.

Rice is expected to be harvested approximately 100 days after planting.

At the other end of the field, trials from last season will also be monitored.

The field had been recently ploughed, and biochar was still clearly visible within the plots from the application on the 21st December 2009.
