Application Rates and Methods

Persist Premium Biochar

 

Persist

For planters, flower beds, and nursery pots, mix 1 part Persist Biochar with 6 Parts soil.

Watering: 1st initial watering – thoroughly saturate the biochar and soil. For additional waterings check soil moisture and lightly water as needed

Explanation: By thoroughly mixing 1 part biochar to 6 part soil and then saturating, the biochar will hold the water keeping the soil moist for up to 6x longer. Avoid over-watering by checking the soil for moisture prior to watering.

Persist

For horticulture and garden use:
To prepare the soil for planting spread a 25lb bag of Persist Biochar over an 18’ square foot area (approximately 1” deep) and then till or rake in vigorously. Form rows/growing mounds and plant seeds then water.

Watering: 1st initial watering – thoroughly saturate the biochar and soil and let soak. Plant For additional waterings check soil moisture and lightly water as needed  

Explanation: By thoroughly mixing biochar with soil and then saturating, the biochar will hold the water keeping the soil moist for up to 6x longer. Avoid over-watering by checking the soil for moisture prior to watering

Persist

For pre-lawn planting or sod laying
Soil Preparation: Mix a 25 lbs or Persist Biochar over 9’ square foot area of tilled ground and rake biochar into soil. Roll or flatten soil and lay sod or plant seeds. For best results after seeding or laying down sod, sprinkle generously Persist biochar over the entire area lightly (approximately one 25 lbs bag over 36’ sqft area)

Watering: Before seeding or laying sod, moderately saturate the biochar and soil, and let stand till water soaks in. After sprinkling Persist biochar over laid sod or seeded area, water lightly to dampen and then water only as needed.

Explanation: By thoroughly mixing biochar with the soil will make it drought resistant for many years as the biochar will hold moisture in the soil. This will also cause your grass roots to tunnel deeper and develop a much more robust root system for a better lawn. After sprinkling biochar over the seeded area or over the freshly laid sod area, the biochar will hold the water at the surface level where the seeds and sod will access the moisture in the early stages of growth. Avoid over-watering by checking the soil for moisture prior to watering.
