Tomato Biochar

AG Biochar is beneficial as a soil amendment as numerous studies have shown an improvement in crop production, while reducing the amount of water and fertilizer normally applied.  Capable of capturing impurities and potentially harmful chemicals, AG Biochar recycles biomass and bio-waste into life giving nutrients for plants to flourish.
