Biochar Research

Biochar Research   October 15, 2014



Here are some photos of the romaine lettuce and beets growing in a pot containing 0%, 4% , or 8% biochar by volume.  So far everything is right on track and I will initiate the drought simulation on the seedlings in the next week.

Biocrust at Hovenweep NM

I traveled to Hovenweep National Monument today in search of cliff dwellings, but got distracted by the excellent crust communities there!
The lichens were especially vibrant. 
This often overlooked Monument is a great destination for those interested in the natural and cultural resources of the Southwest.
