  • 2. SOURCES OF BIOMASS FOR BIOCHAR
  • 3. PROSOPIS JULIFLORA AS MAIN SOURCE
  • 4. PROSOPIS JULIFLORA - CAUSE AND USE
    SEMI-ARID ENVRIONMENT
    Decrease in rainfall
    High temperatures
    Climate change / variability
    Increase in intensity of cultivation
    -Energy Needs
    -Charcoal Making
    - Wood for agricultural implements / funiture
    -Pods / leaves as livestock feed
    Groundwater use
    Contribution of salts
    -Use of complex fertilizers
    -Surfacing of natural salts from deep inside the ground through groundwater
    +
    ALKALINE SOILS
    Fallow lands
    Poor germination,
    Non-availability of soil minerals
    Decrease in yield
    Suitable for growth of ProsopisJuliflora
