About article:

Biochar, a relatively new material, could be considered as a means to sequester carbon while concurrently improving soil chemical and physical characteristics. A synergic amelioration effect could be anticipated once biochar is applied in a mixture with compost. As it was proven by the results of this study, application of the biochar/compost mixture has positive effects on the available water holding capacity and bulk density of the sandy loam soil. However, there was only limited evidence of the inorganic fertilizer influence on the hydrophysical properties under study. The results were obtained from the unique, long term field experiment and fully demonstrated importance of such kind of experiments while testing new amelioration practices focused on strengthening resilience of the degradated agro-ecosystems towards impact of the global climate change and intensive agricultural land use.
