A fundamental understanding of biochar - implications and opportunities for the grains industry (UWA00130)

Plain text source: 
Based on the data, a number of biochars will be selected for detailed field and laboratory-based experiments to assess the different aspects of the biochar on crop nutrition and associated soil properties... Organic manures and green waste materials show promise in augmenting the use of mineral fertilisers in cropping systems, whilst the use of biochar may have a role in sequestering carbon and improving the nutrient retention capacity of soils... The project (in collaboration with project CSO00041, Evelyn Krull CSIRO) uses a combination of fundamental and applied experiments to assess the potential fit of biochar into current and future farming systems with a particular focus on plant nutrient acquisition...
