Re: [EXTERN] Re: [Biochar] Biocycle Connect: Compost Use Tops List Of Healthy Soils Practices
thermal hygienization via biochar production really is a hot topic (pun intended) that may become more important in the future. In greenhouse vegetable or fruit production, high-temperature resistant tabac-mosaic viruses are really a big, fat economic problem. These viruses survive even high-temperature composting (e.g. 70°C). So, whenever infected residue survives or is recycled in these cultures you re-infect your new crop.
Therefore, if disease-infected biomass is pyrolyzed, you can keep the carbon and use the biochar, either within organic vegetable production in greenhouses or somewhere else.

Quick note to all
There is evidence that a new strain of drug resistant fungi is growing and this is found in material that is normally composted. So I am wondering whether
1. Biochar can help eliminate this fungus
2. We need to pyrolysis biomass to kill the fungus.
