This is a small trial I'm doing for some farmers just outside Hangzhou to show them the benefits of Biochar. I've 48 plots in all so 24 with rice husk charcoal addition at 20Kg per plot. This trial is not for scientific data collection we have that in another trial a little further outside town.

Is it possible to see if any one else has clips of their trials to post on This might be a good way to spread the word about terra preta and biochar. I've only found a few ref's to biochar at the moment but we could change all that very soon if more positive results came in.
