Agricultural Waste-Based Biochar for Agronomic Applications
Agricultural activities face several challenges due to the intensive increase in population growth and environmental issues. It has been established that biochar can be assigned a useful role in
Biochar: A Sustainable Approach for Improving Soil Health and Environment
Current agriculture faces multiple challenges due to boom in food demand and environmental concerns. Biochar is increasingly being recognized by scientists and policy makers for its potential role in
Biochar Role in the Sustainability of Agriculture and Environment
The exercise of biochar in agribusiness has increased proportionally in recent years. It has been indicated that biochar application could strengthen soil fertility benefits, such as improvement in
Integrated use of biochar and lime as a tool to improve maize yield and mitigate CO2 emission: A review
Reducing greenhouse gas emissions and increasing agronomic productivity by sustaining soil organic matter and refining soil fertility have become the main concerns for agricultural scientists. There
Biochar and Its Broad Impacts in Soil Quality and Fertility, Nutrient Leaching and Crop Productivity: A Review
Biochar is gaining significant attention due to its potential for carbon (C) sequestration, improvement of soil health, fertility enhancement, and crop productivity and quality. In this review, we
Potentials, Limitations, Co-Benefits, and Trade-Offs of Biochar Applications to Soils for Climate Change Mitigation
Biochar is one of the most affordable negative emission technologies (NET) at hand for future large-scale deployment of carbon dioxide removal (CDR), which is typically found essential to stabilizing
Application Research of Biochar for the Remediation of Soil Heavy Metals Contamination: A Review
An overview on the application of biochar as an addition to the remediation of heavy-metal-contaminated soil, in terms of its preparation technologies and performance characteristics, remediation mechanisms and effects, and impacts on heavy metal bioavailability is presented.
Biochar as a strategy to manage plant diseases caused by pathogens inhabiting the soil: a critical review
A review of papers that used biochar as a strategy to manage plant diseases caused by pathogens inhabiting the soil in different soil-pathogen-plant systems, as well as showing the positive effects of biochar in the management of soil pathogens.


Contrasted Effects of Biochar on Maize Growth and N Use Efficiency Depending on Soil Conditions
Abstract Biochar amendment may improve crop growth through its nutrients and indirect fertility. However, this improvement varies in a wide range of biochars, crops, and soils. Our objectives were to
Exposure of agricultural crops to nanoparticle CeO2 in biochar-amended soil.
Impact of pigeon pea biochar on cadmium mobility in soil and transfer rate to leafy vegetable spinach
Pigeon pea biochar has the potential to increase spinach yield and reduce cadmium mobility in contaminated sandy soil, and there was a reduction in the diethylene triamine pentaacetic acid (DTPA)-extractable Cadmium in the soil and in transfer coefficient values (soil to plant), as well as its concentrations in spinach leaf and root, indicating that cad mium mobility was decreased.
Biochar as possible long-term soil amendment for phytostabilisation of TE-contaminated soils
Plant metal uptake by ryegrass is determined from three TE-contaminated soils treated with two biochars, showing that surface area plays an important role in metal immobilisation.
