This is not an easy task with soil quality being one of the major limiting factors. Improving the recycling of organic manures can be an important step toward stabilizing and optimizing soil quality in crop production systems. Recently, the pyrolysis conversion of crop straw into biochar and using it as a soil amendment has begun to… CONTINUE READING
