While soil freeze-thaw cycles can decrease soil nutrient retention over winter by increasing leaching losses and greenhouse gas emissions, biochar as a soil amendment could mitigate these effects. Nevertheless, there is often variation in the effectiveness of different biochar formulations with respect to soil nutrient retention. We added 15N tracer to soil mesocosms to examine the effects of bioc ...
