Biocharm Project: Biochar for Carbon Reduction, Soil Management and Sustainable Agriculture

A 12 month funded project, through the Asia Pacific Network for Global Change (APN), led by Appropriate Rural Technology Institute (ARTI), India. The other partners are the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI), SME Cambodia and the University of Edinburgh‘s UK Biochar Research Centre. This original research will look at the possible agronomic benefits which the addition of biochar can have to agricultural systems in South and South East Asia.

We are currently looking for opportunities for extending this project, and in this initial year aim to build capacity to work towards a larger research project. This will allow us to answer further questions through long-term multi-year trials.

This blog is managed by Sarah Carter, a researcher at the University of Edinburgh’s UK Biochar Research Centre. At the moment this blog is focussed on the field trials in Cambodia but also covers other aspects of the project. Please get in touch for further information or comments.
