What BioChar Can do for Your Gardens & the Environment
Presented by: Mingchu Zhang, Professor, UAF School of Natural Resources and Extension
10:00 a.m. - 11:30 a.m.
BioChar sounds too good to be true; what can it really do? Ming is very knowledgeable about soil; he has been working with it for many years. He knows what it needs and how to produce it. He is now making his own BioChar.
BioChar is a charcoal-like substance that’s made by burning organic bio-mass from forestry wastes in a controlled burn process called pyrolysis. Although it resembles charcoal, biochar is uniquely different. It is produced using a specific process to eliminate heavy metal contamination and safely store carbon and then is used as a soil amendment.
