With traditional composting, the decomposition of bio-waste creates ammonia and carbon dioxide, which can be toxic in large quantities to both nature and humans. The Bokashi composting method prevents the formation of ammonia and instead produces amino acids that the plants quickly absorb.
It also creates significantly less CO2, which means it can retain more nutrients and provide higher-quality organic compost for your garden, lawn, or plants. The compost also contains polysaccharides, a starch that helps regulate many physiological processes, including cell growth rate, flowering, and rooting.
Improve water retention
Water retention begins with healthy living soil. When your soil is healthy and thriving, providing your plants with all of the nutrients they need, it will also be able to retain water better. This means it will cut down on water costs for your garden.
Eliminate the need for chemical fertilizers
Chemical fertilizer depletes the soil of microorganisms overtime. Over time, these fertilizers can do more harm than good to your garden. Once the chemical fertilizers wash out of your soil, there won’t be any beneficial matter left.
However, EM-1 and EM® Bokashi helps to build a thriving ecosystem for your plants and provide long-term benefits to the soil. When you have a nutrient-rich soil food web, you can rest assured knowing your plants will have a sustainable environment every season.
