Farm scale biochar production, biochar nutrient enhancement and application methods in Nepal

In 2014/15 we had the opportunity to work on an Asia Development Bank project and to introduce biochar into Nepali agriculture. Working in 15 villages and setting-up more than 140 field trials with various different stable and cash crops, we gained valuable experiences on how to increase yields substantially using low amounts of nutrient enhanced biochar.
