AGRICULTURE

Our biochar is a remarkable carbon-rich substance produced through the process of pyrolysis—a method of converting organic biomass, such as agricultural waste and forestry residues, into a stable form of carbon.

Prime 6 biochar is made from hardwood biomass only, giving it highly porous structure, enriched with a multitude of micro and macro-sized pores. These pores act as a reservoir, capable of retaining essential nutrients, moisture, and beneficial microorganisms, fostering an optimal environment for plant growth.

The advantages of using biochar in agriculture are numerous and profound. When incorporated into the soil, biochar offers several key benefits:

  • Soil Fertility Enhancement
    The porous structure of our biochar provides a habitat for beneficial soil microbes, promoting their activity and proliferation. These microorganisms contribute to the breakdown of organic matter, nutrient cycling, and the suppression of harmful pathogens, thereby enhancing overall soil fertility and plant health.
  • Nutrient Retention
    Prime 6 biochar has a high cation exchange capacity (CEC), meaning it has a strong affinity for retaining essential nutrients such as nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium. This allows for improved nutrient availability to plants, reducing the need for excessive fertilizer application and minimizing nutrient runoff.
  • Water Retention and Drainage
    The porous nature of our biochar enables it to retain water efficiently, acting as a sponge within the soil. This capability enhances moisture availability for plants during dry periods, reducing irrigation needs. Simultaneously, biochar aids in improving soil drainage, preventing waterlogging and facilitating better root development.
  • Carbon Sequestration
    By utilizing our biochar, you contribute to carbon sequestration—the long-term storage of carbon in a stable form. The carbon captured within biochar remains locked in the soil for hundreds or even thousands of years, helping to mitigate climate change and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
  • Soil Structure Improvement
    Incorporating Prime 6 biochar into the soil improves its physical properties, enhancing soil structure, porosity, and aeration. This leads to better root penetration, nutrient uptake, and overall plant growth. Additionally, biochar helps to reduce soil compaction and erosion, safeguarding soil health for future generations.
