    How can I obtain a sample of the biochar produced by IRRI? Ill be traveling to Philipines in 2 days. Is there any commercialization of the Biochar? so I can buy it?
    I am doing research at Taiwan, and I am very interested in getting some of the Biochar that you are producing.
    Please Ill appreciate any information you can give me.
