Dovetail Partners presented a Webinar on "Using Biochar in Viticulture" on Wednesday, January 12. Speakers included Kathleen Draper, International Biochar Initiative; Doug Beck, Monterey Pacific, Inc.; Josiah Hunt, Pacific Biochar, Inc.; and Harry Groot, Dovetail Partners, Inc. Topics included biochar’s potential and how biochar is being used to solve problems.
Biochar has been successfully used in viticulture to boost productivity through improved plant and soil health without negative effects to the grape or wine flavor. There is a large body of research supporting the application of biochar in viticulture specifically, as well as in soils and compost. A dozen of the most recent and relevant are highlighted in Dovetail's report and support biochar’s use in viticulture.
"Using Biochar in Viticulture" was part of a three-part webinar series on biochar, presented by Dovetail Partners. "Using Biochar with Livestock and Poultry" was presented on January 26, and "Using Biochar for Stormwater Management" will be presented on February 9, at 2 PM EST. Information provided will be applicable for biochar producers, users, practitioners, and investors. Registration is open online at: https://bit.ly/BiocharSeries.
