Impacts of BIO CHAR applications on crops production, soil fertility and CO2 Emission from soil

  • The research conducted in the farmer’s field at Rupauliya, Daunnedevi and Jamuniya VDCs in Nawalparasi. 90 women form different 6 groups are mobilized for the research activities.

 

Conclusion:

Biochar addition to soil as a soil amendment has a significant role in increasing the fertilizer efficiency and crop growth. Its addition to soil helped to decrease soil pH and helped to increase the soil carbon which directly helps in soil carbon sequestration. Moreover it also helped to improve the soil properties and plant parameter. Bulk density is significantly reduced in biochar added plots which helps to increase the soil aeration and thus root growth. Biochar also helped to increase the Cation exchange capacity (CEC) of soil. Thus these characteristics make biochar an exceptional soil amendment for use in carbon sequestration and sustainable agriculture.

Despite the current growing body of research on biochar, there is a high level of variability in field trial outcomes, there remains a lack of long term studies on the yield and overall ecological impacts of anthropogenic additions of biochar to the environment, a lack of regional and system specific research, and a lack of consensus on the exact mechanisms by which biochar impacts soil processes, carbon cycling, and crop yield. While the research to date justifies the excitement over biochar’s potential agronomic and climate change mitigation benefits the identified gaps in knowledge also justify continued field research and a precautionary approach towards the adoption of biochar on any scale.
