Abstract:

The application of biochar to soil is a recent approach to establish a significant, long-term, sink for atmospheric carbon dioxide in terrestrial ecosystems. Biochar is a soil and sediment component prepared by pyrolysis. Their compositions vary by pyrogenic organic materials ranging from slightly charred biomass to charcoal. It is a good soil amendment that increases water holding capacity of soil; increase soil fertility, increased crop production, reducing emissions and increasing the sequestration of atmospheric CO2 into soils, strong sorption’s affinity for organic contaminant and mostly control pollutant migration such as reduce nitrate leaching from soil. Nitrate leaching from agricultural soils is a major concern to the groundwater, surface water bodies, and environment and also affects the farmers ‘economy. Biochar is anticipated to be an effective mitigation option to nitrate leaching.
