AimsBiochar application in soil has been increasingly suggested as an option to improve soil ecosystem functions and optimize agricultural systems. The main goal of the present work was to explore the effects of straw biochar application at different dosages on the growth and metabolic processes of maize plants, especially roots.MethodsField and pot experiments were conducted independently, in which maize plants were grown in soil amended with straw-biochar at dosages of 0%, 1%, 3%, 5%, 15% and… CONTINUE READING
