Orchards & Vineyards

We often stress directly applying EM•1® Microbial Inoculant to the soil or to make high quality composts with EM•1® Microbial Inoculant. When it comes to trees, shrubs and vines the applications are often foliar (sprayed on the leaves). Plants absorb nutrients several times more effectively through their leaves than through their roots. Additionally, sustainable farming practices encourage the use of organic composts that can be dug into the soil along the drip line of the trees or shrubs.

By combining foliar and soil applications and amending the soil with lots of organic matter around the trees and shrubs, insect infestation can be deterred by encouraging healthy plants and soil. Problems, such as brown rot thWine Grapes Grown in New Mexico with EM•1®.at tend to appear on stone fruits (peaches, apricots, cherries, etc.) can be kept at bay through organic gardening techniques.

For all orchards, trees and vines, prunings can be chopped and inoculated with EM•1® and incorporated right in the rows to add microbes, accelerate breakdown, and add organic matter all at the same time. This is especially beneficial for areas that have placed bans on burning plant materials and for operations with limited space.
