Pelleted biochar : Chemical and physical properties show potential use as a substrate in container nurseries

  title={Pelleted biochar : Chemical and physical properties show potential use as a substrate in container nurseries},
  author={R. Kasten Dumroese and Juha P Heiskanen and Karl R. Englund and Arja I Tervahauta},
We found that peat moss, amended with various ratios of pellets comprised of equal proportions of biochar and wood flour, generally had chemical and physical properties suitable for service as a substrate during nursery production of plants. High ratios of pellets to peat (>50%) may be less desirable because of high C:N, high bulk density, swelling associated with water absorption, and low volumetric water content, whereas a mixture of 75% peat and 25% pellets had enhanced hydraulic… CONTINUE READING
