EM1 is the fundamental product of EM. It comes in a liquid form and contains different groups of microorganisms, including lactic acid bacteria, yeast and phototrophic bacteria. Because of the co-existence of these microorganisms, EM1 and the metabolites it contains are able to activate native microorganisms in various environments and conditions and in many different fields such as agriculture, animal husbandry, environmental purification and health care. EM1 is also used to make EM Bokashi and EM Mudballs.
EM1 is the original, authentic, Effective Microorganisms solution formulated by Dr. Higa. It was developed in the 1980s, long before microbiome science caught the world’s attention, and its effectiveness has been repeatedly demonstrated across the globe ever since. Currently, EM・1 is manufactured in more than 50 countries under the direct supervision of EMRO.
