The article presents analysis of retention properties of mineral soil formations enriched with biochar and an attempt was made to characterise the states of hydration. Due to a complex and time-consuming process of direct measurement of hydration and retention soil characteristics (the so-called pF curve). The paper investigates the relation between a biochar dose and the amount of water retained in soil at the set capillary potential (pF).
