What is Biochar?
Biochar is a solid material obtained from the carbonization of biomass.It is a fine-grained, highly porous charcoal that enhances soil by retaining nutrients and water.
Customers use SymSoil as a biochar activator
to enhance terrior.
This is achieved through reduced compaction, improved porosity, cation exchange, increased pH, retained water, improved hydaulic conductivity, promoted growth of microorganisms and
Biochar Improves the Environment by:
- Reducing nitrous oxide emissions 50-80%
- Reducing phosphorous and nitrogen in groundwater
- Increasing soil carbon and reducing atmospheric CO2
- Reducing forest fuel load
- Sequestering carbon

Fungal Infused Biochar
Fungi in healthy, living soil can pull 4 to 9 tons of carbon dioxide out of the air, per acre, per year.
Research by Rodale Institute
Research by David Johnson suggests the number might be higher.
