EM-1® is the original and authentic Effective Micro-organisms (EM) discovered and formulated by Dr. Teruo Higa.
EM-1® is an all-natural probiotic for plants and soils. It is a natural, safe technology with many applications around the garden, agriculture, animal husbandry, environmental and water treatment, and health care.
A certified organic input, EM-1® can be expanded by the user to increase the product volume 20 fold, making it a low-cost microbial input.
The combination of microbes in EM has a reviving action on an ecosystem and is completely safe to use. In the soil, EM will function by increasing the beneficial microbes which will improve soil health and function. EM will also improve fertiliser effectiveness by reducing leaching and improving plant availability leading to increased performance in your farming system. In a waste management system, EM will control odours and breaks down organic matter in the form of sludge and inorganic deposits to revive the function of a waste system.
EM-1® Concentrate can also be combined with other products such as liquid fertiliser, and other microbial food sources to enhance the EM effect.
EM-1® is completely free of GMO-altered microbes and contains only carefully selected soil microbes. The preparation is produced in a laboratory environment with high purification requirements. Activated EM-1® is sold under the product name Actiferm and is available in everything from 2L Bag in Box to 1000 L IBC on pallets.
