EM, Effective Microorganisms is a combination of useful regenerated micro-organisms that exist freely in nature and are not manipulated in any way.
EM-1 is used in over 120 countries to accelerate the soil building process, promote beneficial microbial communities, and decrease incidence of disease in all soil types. EM-1 produces high levels of polysaccharides and other beneficial enzymes and organic acids that help build stable aggregate and soil structure, reducing soil erosion and run-off resulting in soils that are better able to absorb and retain moisture, as well as cycle nutrients. EM-1 efficiently breaks down organic matter into stable humus, a key component to aggregate formation, by reducing oxidative forces that primarily rob the soil of C and N in the form of methane and ammonium gases. The result is a greater amount of organic matter being converted to humus, aiding in aggregate formation.
