Learn about the surprising links between climate change and farming, and the multiple benefits of healthy soil. Agriculture covers over 51% of the land of the U.S., and most of this land is intensively managed, resulting in significant soil erosion, loss of soil nutrients, and build-up of pesticides in soils and in water systems. Biochar provides a solution to many of the issues with agriculture. Learn about how biochar can improve soil health, agricultural productivity, and help mitigate climate change.
Deborah Pierce is a founder of Charborn, a California startup, that is working to improve California farming practices by including biochar in their soil treatment programs.
