Our all-purpose biochar blend contains ingredients that mimic the earth’s natural makeup:

  • Sustainable Biochar – provides inorganic carbon, which builds soil and acts as a nearly permanent sponge to absorb nutrients and water, and creates a home for microorganisms.
  • Compost – provides immediate soil food with organic carbon and living soil microbes, building soil tilth and humus. Combined with biochar, the benefits of compost are more pronounced.
  • Worm Castings – provides nutrients, enzymes, and Actinomycetes bacteria, which fix nitrogen and break down tough organic matter into food plants can use.

SOIL REEF™ PURE BIOCHAR – 1 CUBIC FOOT SIZE

Soil Reef PURE Biochar is a premium quality biochar soil enhancement made in the U.S.A. from sustainably produced wood waste and forest residue.  Our biochar’s particle size is 4mm and less, has a low dust fraction, and is delivered with high moisture content for safety and ease of application.  Approximate shipping weight is +/- 18 lbs.

Biochar holds onto nutrients in the soil.  It is best to add the biochar “fully charged” by inoculating it, so that it is adding to the total nutrient quotient of the soil. The easiest way to inoculate is to blend biochar with a quality compost in a 50/50 ratio, then let it “age” for at least two weeks. This primes the now “blended” biochar with the nutrients and microbes released from the compost.

Soil Reef™ PURE Biochar is and will be used in in a range of applications beyond its use as a soil amendment.  Use in remediation, offsets, building material, “engineered” composites and filtration to name a few.  These applications can get very technical, and may require certain biochar properties.
