Biochar is an environmentally beneficial carbon-based soil amendment that has been utilized by indigenous groups to promote healthy soils and crops. Many farmers using biochar can boost near-term yield horizon by +15% first year and up to +25% in the following years.
We are working in Hawai’i with the Natural Conservation Service and Extension Agents of UofH so that Hawaiian farmers can benefit from the Federal USDA Program 336.
Yummet will be there to help support eligible farmers in the Code 336 process to qualify for funding to install biochar to improve soil health.

The United State Department of Agriculture (USDA) has approved Program 336 which went live on November 1, 2022. A budget of approximately $20 Billion has been set aside to reimburse approved applications of biochar for the next 5 years (2023-2028).
This means the USDA will reimburse participants for applying biochar to their lands for approved uses.
The landowners or farmers who found biochar to be cost-prohibitive are now able to utilize this material and take advantage of it’s many benefits.
In order to qualify for reimbursement through USDA, there’s a checklist of items that need to be completed. We can help you with the process by providing guidance and implementing a payment reimbursement plan.
