Brassard, Patrick; Godbout, Stéphane; Palacios, Joahnn H.; Jeanne, Thomas; Hogue, Richard; Dubé, Patrick et al. (2018): Effect of six engineered biochars on GHG emissions from two agricultural soils. A short-term incubation study. In Geoderma 327, pp. 73–84. DOI: 10.1016/j.geoderma.2018.04.022.

„The aim of this research project was to test the hypothesis that only biochars with specific requirements (low H/Corg[nbsp]and O/Corg[nbsp]ratios, high C/N ratio) can reduce soil N2O emissions without increasing CO2[nbsp]emissions in the short term. A 45-days incubation study was carried out, in which six engineered biochars made from the pyrolysis of wood, switchgrass and the solid fraction of pig manure (SFPM), were amended to two agricultural soils (loamy sand and silt loam) at a dose of 2% (w/w) in 1-liter jars.“
