From old growth forests to the most productive cropland of the world, plant health is directly linked to a diverse community of organisms that inhabit the soil. With modern management practices, many beneficial species have been eliminated. This reduces crop performance, nutrition and productivity.
Charcoal Green® BIOCHAR PLUS contains beneficial soil microorganisms and enriched substrates. When added to growing media and native soils, research has shown that it promotes improved plant growth.
Field trials have shown that Charcoal Green® BIOCHAR PLUS can improve plant health and allow growers to reduce input costs.
