Biochar is most commonly produced material through an energy conversion process known as pyrolysis.Biochar is a fine-grained and porous form of charcoal that is specifically made for use as a soil amendment and soil conditioner. Added to soil, it can help to boost soil health, with positive benefits to plant growth and disease resistance.It is now the subject of academic research which will establish its potential to support reduced fertilizer use, reduced irrigation and increased yields.

Present study focused on impact of biochar amount on water drying capacity of biochar blended soil. Various combinations of biochar blended soil and different amounts of water levels (batch mode) were used in the study and identified the suitable combination of biochar blended soils to reduce the water evaporation rate.
