Amazonians are the pioneer workers in put in their effort to increase the soil fertility and productivity by the use of biochar. Biochar is nothing but life from charcoal. Few decades ago it is a common practice for the farmers to burn the plants after harvest. Though the farmers are not aware of the importance of biochar they felt that they are irradiating different kinds of infections and diseases and also the insects. This way the farmers are indirectly helping themselves by improving the soil texture, fertility and also productivity of the crop. The production of biochar is anerobic process. The biochar can be obtained from different crop residues which may be from black or red soils. Biochar is nothing but carbon stable form and it can remain in soil for decades.
