EM·1® Organic Soil Conditioner & Compost Accelerator for Garden Soil

Healthy garden soil grows healthy plants, there's no doubt about that. Healthy soils require organic matter (compost, humus, biochar, and other sources of carbon), microbes, and moisture to promote a healthy environment for plants. The result is strong plants, healthier flowers, greater resistance to diseases and pests, and higher quality fruits and vegetables.

EM•1® Microbial Inoculant is a liquid organic soil amendment that provides a broad spectrum of beneficial microorganisms, enzymes, vitamins, and various organic acids. These are all essential components for healthy soil and plants. The microbes introduced by EM•1® also support the growth of other beneficial organisms including mycorrhizae, earth worms, and insects already in your soil. It is works great with garden and lawn fertilizers, and is an excellent compost accelerator.

Lots of organic matter is essential to overall soil health. This is one of the reasons compost is so important for gardening success. If you want to make your life easier and avoid all the hassle of turning large piles of compost, take a look at our food waste recycling systems using Organic Rice Bran Bokashi. Since microbes convert organic matter to a usable food source for plants they are not plant- or soil- specific. This means all plants and all soils benefit from the addition of good microbes like the ones in EM•1. EM•1 will help you grow more nutrient-dense fruits and vegetables that will not only taste better, they will also last longer. For your soils, the beneficial microbes in EM•1 produce lots of polysaccharides, glues that hold the soil together and hold in moisture, improving drought resistance.

So, no matter what type of gardens (hanging gardens, straw bale gardens, survival gardens, container gardens etc), you have or gardening process (square foot gardening, raised beds, hydroponics, etc) you are following EM•1 will benefit your plants. It is easy and cost effective. See below:

Applying EM·1® is very simple. Just use a hose-end sprayer, watering can, or pump sprayer, as you would with any liquid fertilizer, and spray all your plants once a week. For the average 10x10 garden you will need one ounce per week. For the average garden, 1 quart will last 32 weeks. Some hose-end sprayers let you dial in the dilution rates. We suggest one ounce per gallon (2 TBS) for all plants. The best time to spray is early evening.
