Biochar in the Southwest

Using New Mexico Practices and Regulations as a Model


CJ Ames and Eva Stricker, PhD, Quivira Coalition
Kelpie Wilson, Wilson Biochar Associates


This workbook offers practices on New Mexico lands as a model for making and using biochar in a relatively hot, dry, and windy environment. It is both a primer on what biochar is and what makes it a useful tool in land management, as well as a guide on how to produce and distribute it on the land. This workbook is intended to accompany in-field or video training that will enable land stewards and technical service providers to safely produce biochar for use in their operations.
