This review summarizes the recent research studies on the composition of biochar (BC) that controls carbon presence in soil, as well as BCs role in improving soil fertility and carbon sequestration. The main finding of the present work revealed that the high pyrolytic temperatures in BC production may have negative impacts on phyto-availability of essential nutrients.
