Genesis Biochar is FDA Organic Certified Horticultural Charcoal soil amendment used to condition and build soil. Biochar can endure in soil for thousands of years making it a practical and efficient way to sequester carbon.
Being an absorbent, when Genesis Biochar is mixed in soil it's like populating it with huge city of mansions. Each mansion would have a loud speaker out front addressing all the life and nutrients in your soil. The message would say: Welcome! There are millions of rooms available. You can have a safe and permanent home hear.
Genesis Biochar increases crop yields, sometimes substantially if the soil is in poor condition. It helps with Fertilizer Efficiency by preventing fertilizer runoff, leeching and percolation, thus allowing for the use of less fertilizers and diminishing agricultural pollution to the surrounding environment. It helps retain moisture, helping plants through periods of drought. Most importantly, it replenishes exhausted or marginal soils with organic carbon and fosters the growth of soil microbes essential for nutrient absorption and retention. Research has shown that the use of biochar can provide protection against some foliar and soil-born diseases. Healthier soil fosters healthier plants and healthier plants are more diseases and pest resistant and can be significantly more nutrient dense.
The best long term results are achieved when used at a 10% ratio that is mixed into the top layer of soil to a depth below the root zone. It can be mixed with other soil amendments or applied independently.
Beyond being used as a soil conditioner biochar is also being used in a wide variety of other applications. It's used to mitigate smell and ammonia gases in barns and stockyards, kitty litter, construction products, waste water filtration, mining reclamation and forest fire remediation.
One of the most significant motivators for the use of biochar is the potential to have a global impact in mitigating climate change via carbon sequestration.
Biochar is without a doubt one of this century’s most exciting new fields of research, with findings and their practical implementation increasing exponentially from year to year. It will be exciting to see this industry impact the world.
Although biochar is an extremely important and effective soil conditioner it has numerous other beneficial uses such as drinking water filtration, medicine, food preservation, sanitation of human and kitchen wastes, as a composting agent and much more. All of these uses have been documented in many different pre-industrial cultures but in recent times, more applications are being discovered, studied and implemented. It is already being used as an absorber in functional clothing, insulation and aggregate in the building industry, as carbon electrodes in super-capacitors for energy storage, food packaging, waste water treatment, air cleaning, silage agent or feed supplement and litter additive.
We often refer to Genesis Biochar as a “CARBON BASED SPONGE”. One gram can have a surface area of over 2,000 square feet per gram – a bit bigger than an indoor volleyball court. It has the ability to absorb up to 6 times its weight with water, micro-organisms and other supporting nutrients. It’s helpful to picture it as a huge city of mansions with gigantic welcome mats that provide permanent homes for all of the components that make up healthy soil.

Genesis Biochar can be applied independently or mixed with other soil amendments. The best long term results are achieved when used at a 10% ratio mixed into the top layer of soil to a depth below the root zone. Although the goal of 10% doesn’t have to go into the soil all at once, one time applications are usually more efficient. Remember that Genesis BioChar will last for hundreds of years so it will not be go anywhere, anytime soon.
