EM is the abbreviation for Effective Microorganisms, a term coined by its discoverer, the Japanese agricultural scientist and university professor, Prof. Dr. Teruo Higa. EM technology has been in use around the globe since 1982.
EM·1® is a multimicrobial mixture primarily consisting of lactic acid and phototrophic bacteria, yeast and ferment-active fungi. When this mixture of naturally occurring and non genetically manipulated microorganisms comes into contact with organic materials, the microorganisms produce an abundance of natural substances such as vitamins, organic acids, minerals and various antioxidants
The perfect blend of microorganisms in EM generates powerful regenerative forces, which develop astonishing genetic potential in various environments. Originally viewed as an alternative to using chemical agents in agriculture, today EM is used around the world in the fields of environment, industry and health.
When used in agriculture, EM promotes the rapid reproduction of beneficial microorganisms, a prerequisite for the generation of healthy soil, thus rendering optimal growth conditions for every type of plant. It is therefore possible to reach high crop yields of high-quality plants and fruits. EM creates an excellent microbial balance which contributes to suppressing pathogenic organisms and supporting beneficial organisms.
