Since you (thankfully!) don't mention complicating considerations like soil type, regional climate, plants involved, biochar source, limits on biochar availability, reliance on compost and cover crops, supplemental irrigation/grey water system if any, we can keep this pretty simple. Common advise for a first time application is to apply 5-10% by volume worked into the soil on 5" soil depth basis prior to planting.

I've been doing research, but I'd like to hear your firsthand accounts. What would you recommend as a good ratio of char to soil? Did you inoculate it first, or use it as is? And finally.. what were your results? Thanks for the wisdom.
