Pine Biochar (High BET) is a organic soil conditioner with a very high BET (surface area). 386m²/g. BET is a commonly used standard for measuring surface area of solids.
The higher BET increases the available micro-pores in Pine Biochar which significantly increases the surface area and reduces the application rate compared to standard biochar by 50%. This offers several key improved benefits, including:
- Reduces application rates compared to standard biochar.
- Allows for an increase in the availability and retention of nutrients in the soil for soil microbes to exchange with the plants roots.
- Helps repair damaged soils by encouraging soil microbe population growth and resultant organic matter.
- Aids in improved plant growth.
