Liquid Char

ARTi is excited to now offer Liquid Char. ARTi’s Liquid Char includes organic nutrients and microbes in addition to microscopic biochar particles. Once more, in liquid form it is now even easier to apply Liquid Char to garden or lawn soils as well as to compost piles. The benefits to your soil and growing yields can be truly remarkable. ARTi’s Liquid Char improves soil health as well as supporting microbial life and biodiversity. ARTi’s Liquid Char increases soil water holding capacity, reduces soil acidity, buffers high pH soils and aids soil stability by combing with soil clay particles and forming aggregates. Liquid Char helps your plants resist diseases and pathogens in addition to the Char being inoculated with mycorrhizae and beneficial bacterial cultures. Among all these benefits offered by ARTi’s Liquid Char there is one more that holds a truly global dimension. Biochar captures climate change causing CO2 emissions. These attributes represent the perfect combination for sustainable practices. The plants capture CO2 from the air transforming it into plant matter and the pyrolysis process locks the CO2 in the char for thousands of years in an organic carbon form thereby preventing the CO2 emissions from decomposing biomass. At the same time, the biochar is truly beneficial for the soil. Go ahead and try the best biochar on the market! ARTi’s Liquid Char.

Premium Black features Biochar with Water. Microscopic biochar particles in water for easy-to-use application.

Premium Organic features Biochar with Organic Nutrients. Balanced with a proprietary blend of macro and micro-nutrients and healthy organisms.
