As one of the few Black Owl Biochar (“B.O.B”) has become the sought after biochar, due to its consistency of its optimally-designed characteristics for:
- Building healthy soil
- Hosting beneficial microbes and fungi
- Reducing acidity Improving tilth and aeration
- Retaining nutrients
- Water-holding capacity = 5-6x its weight, good in droughts
- Saving on irrigation water
An application rate of 5%-10% is typical to maximize the utility of your potting mix/soil. BOB’s particle size remains in the essential root area and won’t wash through the soil like other amendments. It is therefore, typically a one-time application.
