Maximizing the utilization of renewable and natural resources for multidisciplinary applications is in line with the sustainable development goals. Recently, activated carbon (AC) has been widely reported in various applications including environmental, energy, medical, and engineering applications, due to its very high surface area, strong adsorption capacity, and rich surface functional groups. In this chapter, we will comprehensively highlight the recent developments of and findings on the applications of AC in the field of agriculture. Besides that, it will shed light on the different agricultural applications of AC such as fertilization, environmental, and sensing applications. The current challenges and future applications of AC towards sustainable agriculture will be also discussed.
