Richard - Sorry to be so slow to respond. I've lost a lot of
interest in bio-char in the past year, so I haven't been tracking it
as closely as I should. Just the same, in the past two years, every
lead I've had for bulk char at a reasonable price has never
materialized. on thing 'appears' to be clear in the studies I've read
or heard about in recent months is that not all char is equal in
producing results with vegetables production. If you are open to
hearing really bad news about char, check out what Dr Will Brinton
has to say at Woodsend lab (I think you can google it with that info)
Over the years I have had a few samples sent to me but the hysteria
around char led every one of those suppliers to raise their prices to
unaffordable before I could buy from them.
Now my interest in charcoal is pretty much limited to finding a
reasonably priced supply for my chicken feed.
But keep me posted! I sure like everything I've read about terra preta!!
