Biochar is the carbon skeleton left after waste biomass is pyrolyzed (heated at high temperatures in absence of oxygen).
This process creates a unique and very stable form of carbon with a highly porous structure. The porosity enhances the water holding-capacity and nutrient-retention that makes a healthy soil.
ARTi´s honeycomb structure provides the perfect housing for beneficial microbes which defends roots and fights off pests.
Biochar modifies and improves the soil’s performance by retaining moisture and making it available in dry soil conditions.This is possible because ARTi Biochar has a very large porosity which provides a great adsorption capacity.
Biochar helps conserve plant nutrients by holding them within its surface of the pores and making them available when the plants pulls them out through a acidification of the soil.
The nutrients that are charged ions have a property “cation exchange capacity” (CEC), which only positive ions, such as ammonium and potassium cations can retained, in an exchangeable form that is available to plants.
