Overall, your plants become more resilient and produce richer, fuller blooms.

SUSTAINED RELEASE OF NUTRIENTS
With the added benefit of Biochar, Jeffries CulChar offers a sustained release of nutrients to meet the increased needs of the plant as it grows. While traditional fertilisers can lose nutrients to the environment, Biochar stores excess water or nutrients to be used at a later time when the plant needs it most. This results in less reliance on traditional fertilisers and watering.
For home gardens
apply a generous handful per m2.
Reapply 6-8 weeks.
For Viticulture and Horticulture
(market gardens, fruit and vegetable growers), apply 1 – 1.2 tonnes per hectare.
Biochar is a specialised form of charcoal, suitable as a soil amendment. Jeffries Biochar is made by heating biomass between 600C-700C in the absence of oxygen, in a process called pyrolysis. Biochar is essentially pure carbon that can stay in this form for potentially thousands of years. The use of biochar has been acknowledged as a way to offset the increasing warming of the planet due to excess carbon in the atmosphere.
Under the microscope, Jeffries Biochar consists of literally millions of tiny pores. This porous structure gives it a very high surface area – 1 gram of biochar can be equivalent to over 2,000 square metres, creating infrastructure for billions of beneficial micro-organisms to thrive. As well as improving the soil structure, the porous nature of Jeffries Biochar allows it to store nutrients and water, then release them when they are needed most.
