Carbon Gold is driving the biochar revolution with products suitable for home gardeners, allotmenters and professional growers. Carbon Gold has also developed kilns for making biochar on a small to medium scale and is working on projects in the UK and internationally to help producers get the most out of the benefits of biochar. Biochar is a form of charcoal that can be made from any woody biomass such as prunings, woodyard offcuts, or coppiced wood. Once ground to a smaller particle size it encourages the mycorrhizal fungi and bacteria that characterise healthy soil. This helps plants to thrive and yield good crops. Biochar reduces the need for watering, increases soil fertility and endures in the soil for 100s of years.
