EM-1 Improves Soil Health and Resistance To Pests and Disease.
EM-1® is a microbial soil conditioner that increases the number and diversity of beneficial microbes in the soil. These beneficial microbes overtake the disease causing bacteria and speed up the breakdown of organic matter and nutrient cycling.
When used regularly, EM-1® will boost the health of your soil and plants and improve their resistant to disease and pests.
EM-1® and Vegetable Gardening
Vegetables are very responsive to EM-1®, and the use of EM-1® improves their flavor, nutrition and storage life. Insect and disease problems are reduced due to better plant health and resistance.
Soil conditions (tilth) and fertility are enhanced and organic matter increases using EM-1® on vegetables. Continuous use of EM-1® has a cumulative result and the soil is improved year on year where EM-1® is used. This is especially helpful in eradicating soil born diseases like blight.
