BioChar DG is a soil amendment made from the carbon skeleton of wood, or other organic matter, through the process of super heating. Every small piece of biochar has millions of molecular bonding sites that hold water, nutrients, microbes, fungi, and bacteria that would otherwise be washed away or die from harsh conditions. Once introduced to your soil, biochar will stay for years, helping build the soil profile. BioChar DG applications result in rich, carbon-heavy soil that feeds itself and the plants growing in it.
The Andersons BioChar DG features Dispersible Granule (DG) Technology, which allows particles to disperse when watered. The DG Technology helps the Andersons BioChar DG move past the thatch layer of your lawn or the mulch in your garden bed, and into the soil without any raking, digging, or tilling. The spherical and uniform granules also mean low-dust, making The Andersons BioChar DG easier to work with.
Other biochar products have chunks of organic material, are dusty, and messy. These products have to be worked into the soil and then watered thoroughly to reach the root zone and be effective.

APPLYING BIOCHAR DG
BioChar DG can be applied to all soil and turf types in any growing stage. It can also be used in gardens and flower beds. BioChar DG can be applied on its own or blended into other granular applications. For best results, mow prior to applying and water in thoroughly. Avoid applying BioChar DG before heavy rainfall as particles risk being washed away.
Some situations will require higher use rates and/or more frequent applications.

I use this in conjunction with Humic DG. It pops the grass nicely. I have seen a difference in color and thickness.
