These garden essentials help plants to access the nutrients in the soil such as nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium.
Nutrients such as N, P, and S are bound in organic molecules and not easily absorbed by plants (low bioavailable.) Plants depend on soil microbes to access these nutrients.
Infact, microbes feed on these nutrients and release them back into the soil in a form that plants can easily absorb.
This is why the microbe community in the soil is so important for growing healthy plants and produce. The results are healthy green leaves, stronger root development and bigger plant growth without any more synthetic fertilizers!
Use EM-1® to soak seeds before planting, and immediately after transplanting from pots or seedling trays into garden beds or pots to improve root development and nutrient uptake.
Water weekly throughout the growing season for healthy plants, lush growth and increased yields.
Regular use of EM-1® will:
- Improve seed germination and root development
- Increase root size
- Increase nitrogen uptake
- Speed up nutrient cycling
- Improve plant vigor and health
- Restore natural resistance to disease and pests
- Improve water absorption
- Naturally loosen compacted soil
- Improve plant quality: size, color, and shelf life
- Increase beneficial microbial activity
