Boost Vineyard Production
Vineyards are under constant pressure to perform a balancing act between striving for the best production of grapes possible and an ever-increasing need to maintain environmentally conscious practices. Particularly in the Napa region, vineyards must adapt to water use restrictions and fire-safety precautions. Biochar can help vineyards address these needs. When used as a soil additive, biochar serves as a sponge, holding onto water and nutrients, and encouraging a thriving microbiome of microorganisms. Biochar’s synergistic effects on soil health result in increased growth and crop production, with no loss in quality of the fruits. Further, as one of the most stable forms of carbon storage, biochar stays in the earth for 100s to 1000s of years; much longer than other soil additives, which eliminates the need for frequent reapplication.
