Works great for sandy soils.

Good way to get rid of palm fronds.

It depends on which banana and the situation.

It's a soil amendment that can be used with many other soil amendments.

I use it with grass & compost to bind the excess nutrients and it also helps

keep the soil loose for the next 100 years.

I would like to learn more about if it has any beneficial effects on corm rot,

anecdotally it appears to be positive.

WOW....thanks for the link.
I am going to use that stuff on all my plants, seems like a good supplement.
I am always looking for cutting edge technology that will grow my plants bigger , stronger and bester
Years ago I would use the spent charcoal from the many canister filters on my aquariums as a soil supplement it was Ohio biochar.
The stuff works.
Henry Ford had some good ideas with it also. Kingsford charcoal.
