A Few Photos of the Rice Hull Charcoal Trial
Robert flanagan, SAFFE, China, July 31, 2007

I've just got back from collecting some soil from the field and though I'd pass on a few photos. At this stage no chemical fertilizers have been used and at 35days the charcoal plots are way ahead with no pest problems unlike the unamended plots. The lower plots are harder to photograph as the corn is so dense but on site you can still see the biochar plots are way ahead.

I was really only doing this for shock value to try and get more support for larger trials. I also wanted to show the local farmers first hand how easy it is to use biochar from agri-residue, so as they say in the good old US of A "Mission Accomplished" but the troops (Or troop) won't be leaving here either.
