Biochar is an organic matter that is burned slowly, with a restricted flow of oxygen and then the fire is stopped when the material reaches the charcoal stage. It can be used for a range of applications as an agent for soil improvement, improved resource use efficiency, remediation and protection against environmental pollution and as an avenue for greenhouse gas mitigation. The video shows how you can make biochar for soil amendment in small farms.

Biochar is mostly used as a soil amendment. This is a 2,000 year-old practice which converts agricultural waste into a soil enhancer that can hold carbon, increase soil biodiversity and discourage deforestation. The carbon compounds in biochar form loose chemical bonds with soluble plant nutrients and as a result, these nutrients are not easily washed away by rain and irrigation. Biochar alone added to poor soil has little benefit to plants but if used in combination with compost and organic fertilizers, it can greatly improve plant growth by helping retain nutrients in the soil.

Fossil fuels add more carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases to the air which means that they contribute to global warming. However, biomass fuels, like biochar, are carbon neutral. The carbon captured in the biomass by photosynthesis is eventually returned to the atmosphere through natural processes like decomposition. According to a study, sustainable biochar implementation could offset a maximum of 12% of green house gas emissions on an annual basis without endangering food security, habitat, or soil conservation.

If you are planning to make biochar, make sure to do the following first:

1. Have a water source both for safety and for quenching the char.
2. Prepare several shovels and rakes for spreading and cooling the char when it’s done.
3. Wear leather gloves and cotton or wool clothing that won’t melt.
4. Make sure to use dry wood because it is not very efficient to use wood that is more than 20% moisture.

Ok, here’s the video:
