Biochar: Beyond Slash and Burn

IFPRI's picture
Farms have a lot of leftovers: corn stalks, wood chips, animal manure, rice hulls, tree bark, grasses, and more. One way to put these leftovers, or biomass, to good use is to transform them. They can be burned without oxygen to form biochar, a type of charcoal that farmers can use for fuel or mix into the soil.
