EM-1 Sustainability, Integrated Bio Products

Sustainable Living

Sustainability is important for many reasons including: Environmental Quality – In order to have healthy communities, we need clean air, natural resources, and a nontoxic environment. ... Healthcare –Sustainability and healthcare are intricately related since the quality of our environment affects public health.

There are three components to sustainability  – environmental conservation, social responsibility, and economic development. While most people primarily associate sustainability with environmental conservation, it is about people and the health of our communities!

EM-1 Home and Garden, Integrated Bio Products

It is important to build up the beneficial organic matter content in your soil. EM-1® lives on the organic matter and clay particles in your soil. To accelerate the conversion of plant residue to stable humus spray all plant residue and mulch your garden beds with EM-1® . If you prefer using organic plant food and cleaning agents, grow hydroponic plants, require a natural compost accelerator for efficient kitchen composting, want more effective septic tank enzymes, or are just looking for healthier lifestyle changes, EM-1® is a solution for you.

Are you looking for “Green” products? EM-1® products have been approved for certified organic production since 1993. EM Technology® has been green since it first hit the market in 1982. EM-1® is OMRI Listed which means certified organic operations can use it. It is made with naturally occurring non-genetically modified (NON-GMO) beneficial microorganisms and is

fermented at body temperature so it also qualifies as a raw product.

TeraGanix is dedicated to expanding the uses of EM Technology® to help you maintain a healthy and sustainable lifestyle. Enjoy these simple and effective sustainable solutions in your home:

Indoor and Outdoor Gardening

EM-1 ® Microbial Inoculant is basically a liquid probiotic for the soil. The microbes introduced by EM-1® support the growth of other beneficial organisms including mycchorrizae, earthworms, and insects already in your soil and plants. Since it is not a fertilizer, you still need to use fertilizers. Microbes make the fertilizers work better and make them available for plants to use. This means you can use about half the amount of fertilizer than you would normally use. EM-1® Microbial Inoculant is an excellent compost accelerator...and we always encourage adding lots of compost for your plants!

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.

Applying EM-1 ® is very simple. Just fill the reservoir of a hose-end sprayer with EM-1®, as you would with any fertilizer, and spray all your plants. One hose-end sprayer will treat about 1/8 acre. For best results spray once per week throughout the growing season and pre-treat all your organic matter (potting soil, peat moss, compost, etc.) with EM-1® (this is also known as a drench). Some hose-end sprayers let you dial in the dilution rates. You can use the rates suggested on our label to set the application rate. We suggest one ounce per gallon (2 TBS) for all plants. The best time to spray is early evening.
