How to Improve Your Soil
You don't need to be an expert to improve soil health. Here is what we recommend encouraging optimal soil health, so your carrots can thrive.
Step one to improve your soil and stop those deformed carrots is EM-1. EM-1 is our all-natural organic liquid probiotic containing a combination of yeasts, actinomycetes and two kinds of bacteria that work together to improve soil health and loosen compacted soil. EM-1 also makes nutrients more available to plants, so they can grow big and strong while becoming more disease and pest resistant.
Good compost will provide essential nutrients that encourage vigorous plant growth. This natural and organic matter also helps improve soil structure, drainage, and aeration. However, compost can be expensive to purchase, and some composting methods can be time-consuming. That's where bokashi composting comes in.
Bokashi is a Japanese word that means "fermented organic matter." Essentially, it's composting that uses microorganisms to break down food scraps and other organic waste. The process is convenient and doesn't produce any bad smells. You can use bokashi compost to make an excellent fertilizer for your entire garden and, of course, your carrot plants.
Our Bokashi Compost Bin and Bucket are made from post consumer recycled plastics and help you create nutrient-rich organic compost all year round. Producing your own compost and combining it with EM-1 will give you everything you need to improve your soil and provide the ideal growing conditions to help carrots grow fast, reducing the risk of any deformities.
