Great ideas never get old. Organic Solution’s SuperChar is a 21st Century application of an age-old soil solution. At its core is Biochar- a natural amendment that improves soil
structure, reduces erosion and is the only amendment to last hundreds of years in your soil.
Here’s how it works: BioChar is a fine-grain charcoal material whose structure is a microscopic honeycomb. Each tiny compartment provides a permanent home for beneficial soil bacteria while also storing moisture and fundamental nutrients. Organic Solution’s SuperChar is 80% biochar pre-inoculated with our worm castings, humate, rock dust, crab shell and Ambrosia. The super charged pores now have no reason to pull existing nutrients from the soil, allowing for an immediate uptake from your plants! The improved structure of SuperChar amended soil not only reduces your fertilizer requirements, it also modifies the climatic and environmental impacts on your land. SuperChar creates a soil carbon pool that is carbon-negative!
Soil Amendment : Biochar offers a number of benefits for soil health because of the extremely porous nature of biochar. This structure is found to be very effective at retaining both water and water-soluble nutrients. Biochar is an extremely effective soil amendment promoting good soil, and in turn plant, health. Biochar can improve water quality, reduce soil emissions of greenhouse gases, reduce nutrient leaching, reduce soil acidity, and reduce irrigation and fertilizer requirements.
Water retention : Biochar is hygroscopic. Thus it is a desirable soil material in many locations due to its ability to attract and retain water. This is possible because of its porous structure and high surface area. As a result, nutrients, phosphorus, and agrochemicals are retained for the plants benefit. Plants are therefore healthier, and less fertilizer leaches into surface or groundwater.
