Cool Terra® Biochar-Based Soil Amendment

Featuring Engineered Biocarbon™ Technology

Cool Terra® is a biochar-based soil amendment product that is engineered to improve soil health, reduce water consumption and help optimize fertilizer use while sequestering substantial amounts of carbon. The highly porous physical structure of Cool Terra® also makes it a promising delivery system for microbials and nutritionals designed to enhance plant growth and productivity.

Optimize Water Retention and Improve Fertilizer Efficiency

In targeted applications, Cool Terra® biochar-based soil amendments can help reduce the use of water in agriculture, turf, and landscape applications by helping practitioners optimize the water-holding capacity of the soil, increase plant available water and limit evaporative water loss. As a result, plants and microbes can get the precious water they need, when they need it.

Our Engineered Biocarbon™ technology also has shown efficacy in improving fertilizer efficiency by retaining water and nutrients in the root zone longer, which gives plants and microbes more time to consume them. This can help reduce challenges related to leach and runoff. In addition to helping with regulatory concerns, nutrient efficiency allows growers and their advisers to adjust their protocols to potentially improve economics while maintaining yield and quality.

Nurture and Enhance Microbial Population

The Cool Terra® soil amendment features a biochar-base that effectively nurtures and enhances the microbial population in soil. The soil’s microbial makeup in the root zone is crucial to soil fertility. Some soil microbes help make water, nutrients, and minerals in the soil available to plants. Other microbes produce hormones that spur plant growth, and some soil microbes stimulate a plant’s immune system. The application of natural soil amendments helps diversify soil microbiology and supports activity in the root zone. A diverse soil microbiome results in fewer plant stressors and diseases, producing higher crop yields.

Societal and Environmental Benefits of Cool Terra® Soil Amendments

Cool Planet’s technology sits at the confluence of four important global and societal trends. Products that help address any one of these megatrends definitely benefit society and the environment. Cool Planet’s Engineered Biocarbon™ technology shows great promise to help address all four at the same time.
