YOUR FARM, YOUR FUTURE
YOU depend on farming and/or forestry for your livelihood.
YOU are navigating CAP and cost increases across the board while keeping up with technology…
…and YOU'RE responsible for looking after the land for the next generation
Every opportunity to limit costs and increase your yield needs to be considered
+plusCHAR enables low-tech, low cost methods to produce Biochar from biomass waste materials, which converts your waste into a valuable resource.
HOW CAN +plusCHAR BENEFIT YOUR AGRI-ENTERPRISE?
Currently, emissions from agriculture in Ireland represent 37.5% of the nation’s carbon footprint. Producing Biochar from waste biomass can both remove and reduce such emissions through nature-based, self-sufficient, simple ways. Farmers, foresters and other land users are ideally placed to lead the response to the climate crisis and strengthen their enterprises in the process.
+plusCHAR creates a friendly environment for soil health, increases the capacity of the soil to retain water and nutrients, and harbour diverse
micro organisms… Improves animal health by adding to feed and bedding. Reduces water contamination Can be used to absorb potential water contaminants and ķeep valuable nutrients in the soil
Incorporating Biochar into your existing operations translates into getting more from your inputs e.g. adding Biochar to slurry reduces emissions, fixes carbon & nutrients in the soil
