EM1 Concentrate

EM1 Concentrate is the original and authentic Effective Microorganisms that was originally formulated by Dr. Teruo Higa. EM1 is an all-natural probiotic for plants and soils. EM1 Concentrate is a natural, safe technology with many applications around the Garden, Farm, Vineyard and Environment. A certified organic input, EM1 Concentrate can be expanded by the user to increase the product volume 20 fold, making it a low cost microbial input.

The combination of microbes in EM, have a reviving action on an ecosystem and are completely safe to use. In the soil EM will function by increasing the beneficial microbes which will improve soil health and function. EM will also improve fertiliser effectiveness by reducing leaching and improving plant availability leading to increased performance in your farming system. In a waste management system EM will control odours and breakdown organic matter in the form of sludge and inorganic deposits to revive the function of a waste system. For more information on the many applications of EM visit our industries page - http://www.emnz.com/industries/. EM1 Concentrate can also be combined with other products such as liquid fertiliser products, and other microbial food sources to enhance the EM effect (please contact EMNZ for further details).
