EcoEra biochar increase phosphorus retention according to measurement at SLU.

Through a PhD research project run at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU), by researcher Masud Parvage, eleven soils were amended with biochar provided from EcoEra based upon bioagropellets from the BIOAGRO system in Sweden. When the 11 soils were amended with wheat residue biochar, the water-soluble P concentrations increased in most soils from 11% to 253 %. The water-soluble P added through the biochar was retained (33–100 %) showing a possible way of using biochar to prevent leakage of valuable phosphorus from the soil.
