Soil enhancers to assist sustainable agriculture

One of IIS research lines is associated with implementation of soil enhancers to both assist sustainable agriculture and reforestation. In particular we are interested in the use of biochar to improve soil properties and increase agricultural productivity both in horticulture and pasturelands. Recognizing that the viability of the biochar depends on social acceptance and its economic sense we are also investigating socio-economic aspects of biochar based on surveys with the farmers and simplified life cycle analysis.
