Interpretive Summary: Biochar-based amendments are known to bind pesticides, including glyphosate. Because there is a growing concern about the presence of glyphosate in food, we were interested to know if biochar can prevent the transport of this herbicide from soil into grapes. This article describes on-going laboratory and field experiments that address this question.
