Biochar can be produced from a wide range of organic sources with varying nutrient and metal concentrations. Before making irreversible applications of biochar to soil, a preliminary ecotoxicological assessment is desirable. First, we determined the effect of biochar type and rate on early growth of wheat in a soil-less Petri dish bioassay. Second, we investigated the effect of the same biochars on seed germination and early growth of wheat in ten soils with varying texture using a glasshouse… CONTINUE READING
