Canadian farmers and landowners have the opportunity to participate in large-scale biochar field trials, which will be conducted to determine the viability of different types of biochars for agriculture use; and its purpose as a possible tool to mitigate the effects of climate change.

Biochar is a type of granulated charcoal which can be used as a soil amendment. It is currently under examination as an approach to carbon sequestration, the process of carbon capture and storage. The trails will be conducted by the Canadian Biochar Consortium. For more information about biochar and the field trials - contact Lloyd Helferty at
