Soil2soil transforms agricultural waste into modified biochar, an eco-friendly soil additive. With India producing 500 Million Mt of agricultural waste in 2022, mostly burned, contributing to greenhouse gas emissions, there's an urgent need for sustainable solutions. Biochar, made through pyrolysis, hasn't gained traction due to limited applications. Soil2soil's modified biochar not only enhances soil fertility, phosphorus, and nitrogen availability but also balances pH levels, prevents nutrient leaching, and reduces fertiliser overuse, presenting an economical and environmentally conscious option for farmers.
