EM stands for Effective Microorganisms

EM is a unique combination of bacteria, yeasts and fungi used to activate and balance the naturally diverse microbiology of nature. 

 

About EM

EM is a sustainable microbial inoculant that achieves synergistic effects by combining beneficial microorganisms which exist in nature. EM activates local and native microorganisms that live in soil and water to boost performance. 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. EM was initially developed to improve soils and enhance crops but has evolved to benefit a wide range of areas and is used in numerous fields including agriculture, animal husbandry and environmental purification in more than 100 countries around the world.

The Effect of the Soils Bulk Density

A soils bulk density plays a huge role in determining the effectiveness of the soil and the future productivity of a farming operation. Bulk density reflects the soil’s ability to function for structural support, water and nutrient and microbial life movement, and soil aeration. In NZ many farms have seen there soils bulk densities increase over time decreasing soil productivity

How EM can Improve Carbon Sequestration

EM is carbon builder rather than a carbon burner as such it can have a dramatic impact like all soil microbes on Carbon Sequestration. Using EM in soils increases organic matter, fertile topsoil is rich in soil organic matter. Soil organic matter (SOM) is formed by the biological, chemical and physical decay of organic materials on the surface and below the soil.
