Oral SessionA05 Environmental Quality
Biochar has potential to improve soil quality and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. However, its use in agriculture and forestry will depend on the characteristics of the biochar, soils,production systems as well as economics. This session will provide current, cutting edge research related to biochar usage for improving soil quality (e.g. short/long-term carbon storage; fertility status), realized changes associated with soil greenhouse gas emissions, and its effect on agricultural and forest production.
