M•1® is a liquid containing many co-existing microorganisms. The major groups of microorganisms in EM•1® are lactic acid bacteria, yeast and phototrophic bacteria. EM™ was first developed in 1982 as an alternative to chemicals in the field of agriculture. Through extensive research and experiments over time, EM™ became recognized as effective in various fields, including environmental remediation, composting organic waste, reducing odor in livestock operations, treating wastewater and many more.

When EM•1® is applied properly, we know with over 20 years of experience that EM Technology™ can specifically make the following possible:

  • Decomposition of organic matter (including organic wastes and residues) and the improvement of fertilizer effects
  • Recycling and increasing availability of plant nutrients
  • Fixation of atmospheric nitrogen
  • Suppression of soil-borne pathogens
  • Solubilization of insoluble nutrient sources
  • Production of polysaccharides and overall rich microflora to improve soil aggregation

Overall, the use of EM•1® is an economical way to promote a sustainable, resource-recycling agriculture that is environmentally friendly.

EM•1® can benefit agriculture, clean the environment, and improve our life

  • EM•1® eliminates odors so, it can be used for cleaning in the home.
  • Dilute EM•1® or Activated EM•1® with water (1:500 dilution) then use it for cleaning.
  • A half cup in the washing machine can help clean the clothes.
  • The EM•1® in the water draining into your pipes will work on cleaning the sewer lines.
  • A half cup in a vaporizer will remove odors in the home (cigarettes, wet dog smell, food).
  • Clean the bathroom with it too. Have spray bottle handy and spray into the sink, shower, and toilet after each use. (1:500 dilution).

Agricultural Applications of EM•1®

One of the main uses of EM•1® in agriculture is soil improvement by applying large amounts of Activated EM•1®. Large amounts of Activated EM•1® can be prepared by utilizing a large tank. By applying large quantities of Activated EM•1® to the soil from the land preparation stage, the soil will have a strong microbial anti-oxidation condition. This will result in higher quality crops. Recently in Japan an EM•1® activation unit has been developed to produce large amounts of high quality Activated EM•1® with a low labor cost.
