EM-technology is based on the use of mixed types of beneficial microorganisms that live in the natural conditions. Being the centers of growth for rapid multiplication of beneficial micro flora in the soil, they favor a strong growth of plants and animals.
The technology has been invented by Japanese scientist Tero Higa. He studied more than 3,000 basic stocks which provide for the entire life of microorganisms and discovered the essence of their regenerative and degenerative interrelation. Tero Higa has found out that both in the life-giving and pathogenic microorganism environment, about 5% stocks are the leading ones, while the others are able to change their original orientation towards the leaders.
Therefore, if the soil contains more regenerative microorganisms, the environment is also life-giving and the plants thrive and give high yields. If the pathogenic micro leaders dominate, the plants are weakened, susceptible to diseases and pests, the yield is low. Tero Higa selected 86 leading regenerative stocks which perform the whole array of functions for the plant nutrition, protection from diseases and improvement of the soil environment, commonly known as EM (effective microorganisms).
Depending on the new technology intensity and the soil contamination degree, the yield increases 1.5-4 times. Yet the main advantage of EM-technology is the ability to revive the high natural fertility of the soil in 3 to 5 years and reap high-quality eco-friendly harvest having eliminated the use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides.
