EM Product Uses

Today EM is used in many systems pertaining to agriculture and environmental management. These range from 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. More recently research from Japan and projects in the USA have reported the ability of EM based products to reduce dioxin contents.

The application and use of EM technology in NZ is wide and varied:

  • From crops like peas, wheat, linseed to onions, potatoes, carrots and beans.
  • From sheep, cows and deer, to pigs and chickens
  • From wine grapes and olives to saffron and lavender
  • From recycling food waste in restaurants and schools back to gardens
  • From household food waste to larger office blocks and Universities collecting lunchtime food waste.From small composting toilets in holiday homes to large composting toilets in mountain chalets for trampers and mountaineers.
  • From controlling odours at commercial and large municipal composting sites to controlling odours and improving water quality at vineyards treating their own wastewater
  • From waterway management to marine farming

Whilst initially the use of EM was confined to Agriculture, in recent times the growth sector has been vineyards, kiwifruit growing and waste management. Follow the links on the left hand navigation to find out more about how you can use EM in each different industry.
