The experiment was carried out in a total of 54 pots, with 3 replications according to the randomized plot trial design. In the experiment, broad bean (Vicia faba) plant seeds were planted as plant material. In the experiment, 3 irrigation levels were determined for restricted irrigation (50%, 75%, 100% of the field capacity), 3 levels were determined for mycorrhizal fungus (non-mycorrhizal, G. mosseae and indigenous mycorrhiza), and for biochar treatments, control and 1% biochar were implemented. As a result of the experiment, carbon analyzes of soil and plant samples were carried out. The data obtained in the study were determined to develop better at 100% irrigation level under the conditions of biochar and G. mosseae inoculation. Carbon and nitrogen values were higher in bean plants in pots inoculated with mycorrhiza and treated with biochar. These results imply that increased soil and plant performance under restricted irrigation conditions can result from the application of biochar and irrigation at level I100.
