EM is the abbreviation for Effective Microorganisms, a term coined by its discoverer, the Japanese agricultural scientist and university professor, Prof. Dr. Teruo Higa. EM technology has been in use around the globe since 1982.
EM·1® is a multimicrobial mixture primarily consisting of lactic acid and phototrophic bacteria, yeast and ferment-active fungi.
When this mixture of naturally occurring and non genetically manipulated microorganisms comes into contact with organic materials, the microorganisms produce an abundance of natural substances such as vitamins, organic acids, minerals and various antioxidants
The perfect blend of microorganisms in EM generates powerful regenerative forces, which develop astonishing genetic potential in various environments.
Originally viewed as an alternative to using chemical agents in agriculture, today EM is used around the world also in the fields of environment, industry and health.
