Biochar Application Rate
Mix biochar into your soil up to 5-10% in volume. For example, a 1 cubic foot box is perfect for a 8’x4′ garden. You can also top-dress your lawn or field with biochar at a rate of 1 cubic foot per 375 sq/ft. For bulk application, a single acre of land can support up to 24 supersacks of biochar to reach 10% by volume for the top 4″-6″. However, with precision application along the seed row of your crop, the top required volume can be reduced to two supersacks (4 cubic yards) of biochar. For this reduced amount apply the biochar along a 6″ to 10″ wide path in the seed row.
Beneficial Characteristics Of Wakefield Premium Biochar
- Soil Health
Improves the ability of the soil to retain water, nutrients including nitrogen and allows for a healthier ecosystem for micro-organisms and good bacteria.
The physical properties of biochar are also able to filter impure materials from moving through water runoff and into streams, lakes and other systems that may impact public water supply.
- Odor Filtering
Biochar is able to absorb gases including those released from animal manure. It is effective in reducing the odor generated swine and poultry farms. In addition, the biochar that has been used for filtration can be returned to the soil full of nitrogen to benefit crop production.
- Carbon Sequestration
The process that is specifically used to manufacture biochar for soil health is a carbon negative system. This creates an added benefit of reducing the amount of CO2 that might have been released into the atmosphere.
By buying products with an FSC® label you are supporting the growth of responsible forest management worldwide.

How To Use Wakefield Premium Biochar
Wakefield Premium Biochar needs to be mixed with organic material and water before it can fully benefit your soil. Mix with the soil for a few days before planting seeds. Ideally, you should water the mixed soil a few times. It is best to mix with natural soil mixes like compost, peat moss, or healthy topsoil. Biochar is not intended to be used solely as a soil substitute.
