What is EM?
Effective Microorganisms or EM was developed in Japan 30 years ago and is now a Global technology with an enormous following around the world. EM contains three main families with many different individual species in each family. The three families are; photosynthetic bacteria, lactic acid bacteria, and yeasts. One of the strengths of EM is that it is a diverse combination of microbes, and this gives it versatility in terms of a wide scope of applications that it can be used on.
Today EM is used in many systems pertaining to agriculture and environmental management. These range from as a organic fertiliser, in crop and animal production systems, to livestock and aquaculture units. EM is used widely in environmental management for decomposition and more importantly for recycling of wastes, both solids and liquids. Find out more about EM or Buy EM today.
