The research team after a survey in the community identified different materials that can be used for the biochar production. The team after the survey decided to use bamboo due to its ready availability in the community. The dry bamboo sticks were harvested and reduced to smaller pieces for easy charring. The team also sterilized the collected poultry manure by sun drying to be used for charging the produced biochar. This usually helps to improve biological activity in the soil to make nutrients readily available for plant uptake.
