- ... Sorption and degradation are the primary processes controlling the efficacy and runoff contamination risk of agrochemicals. This study assessed the influence of two biochars, made from woodchips and straw at a pyrolysis temperature of 725°C and applied to a loamy sand and a sandy soil in the concentration of 5.3g100g−1 sandy soil and 4.1g100g−1 loamy sand soil, or 53tha−1 for both soil types, on d ...
