Soil Health: Can the Cane Industry Use a Bit of 'Black Magic'?

Australian Canegrower
Issue 17 Mar 2008 (17 Mar 2008)

Abstract: Biochar is a high carbon product of pyrolysis. Essentially, any biomass can be pyrolysed - that is, heated in the absence of oxygen, but the quality of the biochar depends upon feedstock materials and pyrolysis conditions. Biochar has been shown to increase soil carbon and to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
