Special Issue "Biochar and Soil: What Is behind Its Impacts?"
A special issue of Agriculture (ISSN 2077-0472).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 September 2018).
Interests: soil; carbon cycle; nutrient transport; agrochemical; biochar
Despite the recent increase in biochar research, fundamental understanding of its positive agronomic alterations has remained elusive. This could suggest that a single mechanism is not behind its actions. This Special Issue will be dedicated to expand our understanding of mechanisms behind the impacts of biochar application to agricultural fields. Particularly, studies that explore innovative pathways and elucidate new insights into our understanding of biochar's effect on the soil system are particularly solicited. Field scale studies are preferred, but hypothesis driven laboratory and greenhouse studies will also be considered.Dr. Kurt A. Spokas
