Malawi’s farmers grow crops with 'magic liquid' fertiliser #urine

All,
In one of the poorest countries in the world, aged human urine is replacing chemical fertilizers. Could biochar play a role here to further improve the yield of the poor soils?

Kim,

Using human urine and hard wood ash, as a NPK fertilizer, can work well.  Biochar would be synergistic if added to the root zone and as a top dress....

Interesting work out of Finland on the urine/wood ash benefits for growing tomatoes....
