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.

Dr. Higa is best known for his discovery for EM Technology or Effective Microorganisms. This is a brief profile of his discovery of EM.
The microbes contained in EM have the ability to ferment organic substances. Soil organic matter fermented and decomposed by EM is broken down in the soil and absorbed by plants. Also, EM contains many useful components to promote plant growth. Moreover, in addition to microorganisms, EM contains metabolites produced by various microorganisms and these will activate the microorganisms in the soil.
