The EM® (Bokashi) Compost Method--Save Time And Money

Ag1000® is a compost inoculant containing live naturally occurring beneficial microorganisms. Ag1000® accelerates breakdown, increases biological stability, and encourages biological maturity of compost materials. The increased biological activity aids in rapid air transfer as cellulose and lignin (the two main components of plant materials) are digested in the piles. The increased air transfer results in lower aeration requirements and faster maturity. This means there is no need for long-term maturation on the site and materials can often be applied and planted within 45 days from the beginning of the composting process, saving anywhere from 90 days and longer of maturing time.
