EM•1® Soil Treatment Guidelines:
Prepare the soil with lots of organic matter. On farms, we have growers applying 5-10 tons per acre per year. Compost, worm casting, or fermented food waste would work.
Spray soil till wet with a solution of 1 ounce EM•1® per gallon of water. You can use a hose end sprayer and set at 1oz per gallon. We are shooting for roughly 40 gallons per acre per year of Activated EM•1®. Generally, we suggest applying up to 3 gallons per acre per week of Activated EM•1 throughout the growing season. Follow up with weekly foliar spraying as follows:
EM•1® Foliar Treatment Guidelines:
EM•1® foliar treatments are best applied in the morning before 10 am or in the early evening after 5pm.
A hose-end sprayer is recommended to use for application of the EM•1®. If a garden hose cannot access the garden a handheld or tank sprayer will work.
EM•1® can be added to water or foliar spray solutions that include liquid fertilizers, mineral supplements, or teas. Add the EM•1 ® to the spray solution just before application.
You can use 1oz per gallon to spray all landscape plantings.
For best results, spray at least once per week, but no more than once daily.
