Retention of the soil moisture, reduction of evaporation of water from the soil</p><p>2. Reduction in leaching of the bio / chem fertilizers applied</p><p>3. Increase in the soil microbes / worms at the biochar and soil interface</p><p>4. Regulation of the soil temperture</p><p>5. Suppression of weeds by blocking the sunlight the weeds sprouting and growth is suppressed.</p><p>6. Repulsion of the termites / ants which might attack the live plants </p><p>7. Over a period of time due to various activities the biochar mixes with the soil. </p><p>8. Prevents soil erosion too.</p><p>9. Can increase the ph of the soil towards neutral (mulch very good for acidic soils)</p></li><li><p>BIOCHAR PREPARATIONS &amp; APPLICATIONBiochar compost Application</p><p> Point - eg.

Paddy</p><p>Biochar compost preparation practice</p><p> Biochar + compost + green mulch + soil microbes + (pottery shards / fish bones / brick pieces / urine / jaggery / etc.)</p><p> Addition of biochar to Farm Yard Manure pits in small quantities every day from traditional stoves - a traditional practice most common in India. The composition is (Cattle dung, cattle urine, straw, biochar, ash, pottery shards, pottery tile pieces, etc.)</p><p>Biochar only application</p><p> Point - Biochar mulching - eg.
