Effects of mycorrhizal fungi and biochar 90 Days

Day 90Day 90

Hey Guys, Just got to 90days of my latest biochar trial and wanted some feedback on what data you think I should be taking from this trial? We can clean off the roots and photo as much as possible and do clearly marked side by side photos.

I don't have any funding for this trials so there is a limit on the depth I can go regarding data collection so I'm really looking for a base list. The medium was sterilized subsoil and we used 2Kg soil per tray with three reps of each treatment (I just took the average of each treatment for the attached photo).

Kind Regards, Rob.

How to Make Charcoal
Robert Flanagan, SAFFE, January 30, 2008

I've just been playing around with my natural draft stove to see how easy it would be to use it for cooking and making charcoal http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y5OAkmum7gU&feature=channel_page .
I fed some extra fuel in the side so show the pyrolysis reaction taking place.

[img_assist|nid=494|title=Charcoalab Kit|desc=|link=node|align=left|width=400|height=300]
The Charcoalab Kit contains:
- 6 pots
- 3 baggies of rice hull, temperature specific charcoal
- Litmus paper

Due to issues with posting seeds, we are asking participants to source their
own seeds and to inform us about seeds species and origin (if they come from a
commercial source...maybe a picture of the packet?).

The kits are being distributed by Naomi from New Zealand.

I attach to this mail the instructions for the Charcaoalab Kit, which you
can also download on the website:
