- Biochar can be prepared from different waste by using different methods.
- Efficiency of biochar depends on its preparation method and type of feedstock.
- Adverse effects of using biochar when using inappropriately.
- Several undesirable combinations of soil and biochar were identified.
- There were several unfavorable combinations of soil and biochar found.
The production of biochar from agricultural and environmental waste biomass is gaining a lot of interest as a low-cost supplement due to the many potential benefits. It may have for agriculture and the environment as well as its porous structure and ability to hold soil water. Numerous uses for biochar existed, ranging from soil amendment to the generation of heat and power. This review summarizes the importance of low cost biochar derived from biomass related to agriculture and environmental health, crop responses, nutrient dynamics and other aspects. Biochar may be useful for managing agriculture and the environment in relation to problems with the physico-chemical properties of soil. This review’s goal was to consolidate the most recent information on the potential use of biochar, its application, and its impacts.
