Developing More Effective Enhanced Biochar NPK Fertilisers

For Improvement in Pepper Yield and Quality

Research has shown that the production and utilization of biochar applied at high
application rates can increase soil carbon and crop yields, lower greenhouse gas
emissions and reduce nutrient runoff from soils. However, these high application rates
of 10 t ha-1 may not return a profit to the farmer due to the present high cost of biochar.
