Abstract: The aim of this study is to produce biochar from rice husk and maize straw by pyrolysis and to determine their carbon sequestration and CO2 reduction potential. Studies leading to the incorporation of these biochars in the soil indicated their ability to sequester on an average of 148.67g of carbon/kg of RHB and 132.67g of carbon/kg of MSB, respectively. The potential of RHB and MSB to control the nitrous oxide emissions from the urea-fertilized soil is also investigated as a stride towards the abatement of Green House Gases (GHG).
