Grow Your Plants From The Soil Up!
Without a soil that is rich in beneficial microorganisms, you are wasting fertilizer. Soil is not just a holder for plants, it is a living thing. The better quality soil you have, the better your plants will be and give you more pleasure out of gardening.
EM•1® Microbial Inoculant builds soils quickly, promoting beneficial microbial communities. The soil building process is part of soil aggregate formation. Soil aggregates form as mineral and decomposed organic matter particles are bound together by microbial secretions that act as glues. Stable and well-formed soil aggregate is the key to improving moisture retention, fertilizer uptake by plants, plant vigor, and a host of other benefits.
EM•1® produces high levels of polysaccharides (the glues) and other beneficial enzymes and organic acids that help build stable aggregate and soil structure. Increased aggregate stability prevents the pore spaces between the aggregates from collapsing during heavy, saturating rains and reduces compaction caused by machinery. Furthermore, improved soil aggregate stability reduces soil erosion and run-off. Soils are better able to absorb and retain moisture, as well as cycle nutrients. It is important to build up the organic matter content in your soil. EM•1® lives on the organic matter and clay particles in your soil.
To accelerate the conversion of plant residue to stable humus spray all plant residue and mulch your garden beds with EM•1®. Soils rich in organic matter and have been treated with organic fertilizers will require significantly less EM•1® than soils with low organic matter and those that have been treated with conventional synthetic fertilizers. Compacted soils and those that have had high incidences of diseases in the past are also candidates for higher application levels.
