- ... Biochar is becoming an environmentally friendly material for remediation of heavy metal contaminated soils and improving food safety. A field trial over four rice seasons was conducted to investigate the use of biochar and low Cd accumulating cultivars on Cd uptake in a heavy metal contaminated soil. Wheat straw derived biochar was applied at 0, 20 and 40tha−1. Two rice cultivars with differing Cd ...

- ... Soil degradation is an increasing threat to the sustainability of agriculture worldwide. Use of biochar from bio-wastes has been proposed as an option for improving soil fertility, degraded land restoration, and mitigating the greenhouse gas emissions associated with agriculture. Over the past 10 years, there have been hundreds of research studies on biochar from which it may be possible to determ ...
