What is Bokashi?

What Exactly is Bokashi and How is it Used?

“Bokashi" is a Japanese word that means fermented organic matter. Fermented organic matter is often seen in composting and fertilizer applications in many gardens and for agricultural purposes used around the world. Bokashi is used as a composting method that works with EM technology to break down organic matter in an effective way. Effective Microorganisms help break down compost and will ferment the waste to break it down so that it will eventually return back to soil. Using EM technology, like our EM 1 gardening products, helps to break down the materials that you are composting to build a nutrient rich and aerated soil that creates a strong base for any garden, or even for agricultural uses. By using such a strong base for your garden or agricultural application, you will not only improve your soil, but it will add to the quality of the environment around it as well. More and more people are becoming familiar with composting and bokashi, as there is a growing desire for improved natural gardening, as well as natural alternatives to household waste disposal.

Many people often overlook the importance of the role that soil plays in terms of the quality of your plant's life. The soil that you have sets the pace of your plant's life cycle. Poor soil will shorten the life of your plants, or they will not live up to their full potential. It's also important to test your soil before getting started with any soil improvements.
