Adding Carbon Gold’s enriched biochar to tomato plants at propagation cuts peat use by 10 per cent, reduces transplant shock and promotes faster establishment. These are the findings of ongoing trials by the supplier along with grower Vitacress and growing-media supplier Botanicoir.

“We’re mixing the biochar into our coir slabs and grow cubes at the production stage, which removes hassle for the grower and ensures that the correct proportions of biochar are distributed throughout the product,” said Botanicoir managing director Kalum Balasuriya.
