California Biochar is now available in bulk.
Pacific Biochar has roots in California. Â Our primary processing facility is located in Willows, a small farming town north of Sacramento on the I-5. Â Our California biochar products currently consist of series of organic material inputs sourced from and processed in Northern California. Â Check our biochar price sheetÂ page for up to date information about the availability and pricing of our bulk products.
In California biochar has a special role to play; water use efficiency. Â Significant water use efficiency gains have been observed in both clay and sandy soils. Â Biochar has a high water holding capacityÂ and when incorporated in soils has consistently shown to improve the soils’ water holding capacity. Â Biochar has also been linked to increase water availability. Â Biochar has a high water holding capacity, and due to several interesting characteristics that involve physical, chemical, and biological aspects,Â the water that is held is also highly plant available. Â End result; where biochar has been applied, plants consistently show less drought stress. Â Please see bibliography below to find more information.
We have California biochar products available. Â Our capacity is large, our products are great, and our bulk prices are unparalleled. Â See our biochar price sheet for up to date information for how we might be able to help you. Â Contact us for direct questions and delivered quotes. Â Discounted pricing may be available for large orders.
