GARDENS AND EM-1:
Healthy soils grow healthy plants. Healthy soils require organic matter, like compost, microbes, and moisture to support an environment that suppresses diseases and helps plants absorb nutrients. The result is strong plants and healthier flowers and higher quality fruits and vegetables.
EM•1® provides a broad spectrum of beneficial microorganisms, enzymes, trace minerals, vitamins, and various organic acids, all essential ingredients to support healthy soil and plants. The microbes also support the growth of other beneficial organisms like mychorrizae, worms, and insects already in your soil, bringing nature back into balance. Since microbes convert organic matter to a usable food source for plants, fruits and vegetables will not only taste better, they will be more nutritious and last longer. Beneficial microbes also produce lots of polysaccharides, glues that hold the soil together and hold in moisture, improving drought resistance.
Use in composting, soil conditioning, growing flowers, houseplants, lawns, trees, shrubs, vegetables, and garden ponds. Water-in to the soil or use as a foliar spray.
EM•1®has been used extensively in more that 120 countries worldwide to clean up environmental pollution.
Some of the applications include cleaning up after hurricane and flood damage, restoring "dead" spots in oceans, wastewater and biosolid treatments, polds, bioremediation of oil pollution, corrosion control, septic system failures, solid waste treatment, fat, oil, and grease treatment and odor control.
EM•1® is easy to use and cost effective because it does not require change to the existing treatment and collection system. Because EM•1®is safe and beneficial to the environment it leaves no lasting harmful side-effects. On the contrary, EM•1®leaves the environment a better place after the cleanup has taken place.
Effective Microorganisms has been used in agricultural applications since 1982. Farmers have documented the benefits on 6 continents, demonstrating that EM•1®Microbial Inoculant can work in all soil types, all farming systems, and all climates on earth.
EM•1® is used in over 120 countries in all sorts of farming systems including row crops, seed treatments, orchards, turf, compost tea, aquaculture, vineyards and hydroponics. Whether conventional, organic, or sustainable, any farming method can benefit from using EM•1®to improve the efficiency of their operation. EM•1®is approved for use without restricitons on Certified Organic operations (OMRI Listed) http://www.teraganix.com/OMRI-Listing-s/122.htm EM•1®produces high levels of polysaccharides and other beneficial enzymes and organic acids that help build stable aggregate and soil structure. increased aggregate stability prevents the pore spaces between the aggregates from collapsing during heavy, saturating rains and reduces compaction caused by machinery. Furthermore, improved soil aggregate stability reduces soil erosion and run-off. Soils are better able to absorb and retain moisture, as well as cycle nutrients.
