Project Goal

To fill the knowledge gaps in the effects of biochar in the Mason County region. The project will involve measuring the effects of biochar on the balance of pH, the retention of nutrients, the number of soil microorganisms in local soil types, and crop yield.

Project Update

With the first year of trials complete, biochar has been applied to five chosen sites and the Mason County Conservation District is gearing up for its first squash harvest.
