What Charcoal amendments to soil offers Organic growers

Charcoal can be promoted as a universal "carbon balancing" mix; a safe, ecology promoting, soil and soil mixture additive. If the current soil amendments they now give their farmland soil and the microorganisms it holds are what these need to "hold" nutrients in the soil and "deliver" the nutrients to growing plants, then just add charcoal into that soil to improve that, and water it.

Charcoal can be a gardener's helper for all sorts of fertility management practices.

Charcoal in soil can loosen "tight" soils, giving it greater friability and tilth, which allows deeper water and root penetration.

Charcoal in soil mixtures with your fertilizer can improve the resilience of that fertility which you work so hard to put into a garden. It can help bring the nutrition from composted waste into the soil and to growing plants faster. Regardless of your fertility management practices, charcoal in soil can enhance the performance of those materials.

Charcoal in soil can help beneficial qualities in soil stay and renew themselves in your garden soil.

Charcoal in soil promotes the growth of humic acids and plant symbiotic organisms that help plants get nutrients from the soil.

Charcoal as a mixture additive to soil with all of your other fertility management practices is good for your garden or farm.

Charcoal as a mixture additive to soil with all of your other fertility management practices adds nutrition to the foods coming from your garden or farm.

Using charcoal amendments into soil is good for the environment and it is also one of the best things you can do to reduce the effects of Global Warming and Global Climate Change. Using this bag of charcoal in your soil takes problematic carbon CO2 directly out of the atmosphere with every bag you use. "Carbon credits" paid some part of the production of this charcoal for use in soil.

If we all bought one ton of "Charcoal-in-soil" Mixture Enhancer, then we could halt the rise in atmospheric CO2 this year. We could offset the 6 GT (billion ton) flux of carbon into the atmosphere every year with a 6 GT of "Charcoal-in-soil" investment every year (6 billion people each sequester a ton of charcoal into soil every year). Earth could be a stupendous garden!

Using "Charcoal-in-soil" you can sell licenses to buy "Carbon Credits" to all the other guys.
