EM® is the brand name given to a family of microbial-based products using technology developed by Japanese scientist Dr. Teruo Higa. EM® is an acronym for Effective Microorganisms®.
The main product, EM-1®, is a liquid bacterial product comprising of three groups of beneficial microbes: Yeast, Photosynthetic Bacteria, and Lactic Acid Bacteria. They work together with local and native beneficial microbes, creating a synergy among microorganisms and larger forms of life including insects and worms.
This increases the number and diversity of microbes in the soil and speeds up chemical processes such as organic matter decomposition and nutrient cycling. Without such processes, nutrients would remain in forms unavailable to plants.
