Biochar, a by‐product of biomass pyrolysis, has been suggested as a mean to combat climate change, and at the same time to achieve agricultural and environmental benefits. As one possible source of the components with high aromatic structure in soil humus, biochar is of great importance in increasing soil carbon storage and improving soil nutrient...

... Biochar, a pyrolyzed product prepared from agricultural wastes [16,17], is considered to be a potential amendment material due to its relatively large surface area and micropore volume, high exchange capacity (CEC), and abundant surface functional groups [18][19][20][21]. Thus, the application of biochar in agriculture soil can increase the soil's pH, organic matter, CEC, and nutrient utilization [22][23][24]; mitigate greenhouse gas emissions [25]; and then reduce the mobility of pesticides and their degradation products from the soil to groundwater through pore filling, partitioning, the hydrophobic effect, H-bonding, electrostatic attraction, specific interaction, and surface precipitation [26][27][28][29]; such pesticides and their degradation products include pyrazosulfuron-ethyl [16], glyphosate [30], atrazine [31], and TCP [9]. Therefore, as an environmentally friendly soil amendment, biochar is progressively gaining attention from policy makers and scientific communities. ...
