Episode 314. Biochar and NCAT’s SIFT Farm

In this episode of Voices from the Field, NCAT Sustainable Agriculture Specialists Andrew Coggins and John Wallace talk about biochar and NCAT’s use of biochar in its Small-Scale Intensive Farm Training (SIFT) program.

John runs NCAT’s SIFT farm at the nonprofit’s headquarters in Butte, Montana. SIFT does sustainable agriculture trials at the farm, including some that have focused on biochar. John and Andrew talk about renewed interest in biochar as a means of sequestering carbon and as a soil amendment and even a possible soil enhancement.
