EM • 1® is the starting material for all EM products.
EM • 1® is in liquid form and contains various groups of microorganisms, including lactic acid bacteria, yeasts and photosynthetic bacteria. Thanks to the coexistence of the microorganisms in EM • 1® and the metabolites it contains, already existing microorganisms are activated in different environments and conditions where it is added. This is possible in many different areas such as agriculture, animal husbandry, environmental and water purification, and health care.
The selection of microbes includes lactic acid bacteria, yeasts, and photosynthetic bacteria. Many of these have traditionally been used in our diet, for example in baking and brewing. 1 teaspoon EM • 1® contains more than 1 trillion microbes. These microorganisms are in a dormant state in EM • 1® and are activated by the addition of water and cane sugar molasses.
EM • 1® is completely free of GMO-altered microbes and contains only carefully selected soil microbes. The preparation is produced in a laboratory environment with high purification requirements.
How it works
EM • 1® is a mixture of beneficial microorganisms. The preparation consists of both aerobic and anaerobic species which initiate an anaerobic fermentation process that utilizes and produces vital nutrients that make soil and soil more fertile. Experiments have shown that EM culture enriches ecosystems with better plant development and harvest outcomes both quantitatively and qualitatively.
EM-1 is used together with A+ Sugar Cane Molasses to create EM-A (activated EM) in an activator.
Mix 50ml EM1 + 50ml A+ (dissolve in 950 ml lukewarm water). Leave this in an activator for 1 week. Some yeast flakes may form, these belong to EM. EM-A should smell fresh and sour. The pH should be around 3.8.

Indoor use Reviewed by Surendra.messages on 08 Apr 2021
We use this product primarily in our home. Adding to water for indoor plants seems to keep them healthier. We also spray a little into rooms to improve the bacterial quality and use it to wipe down surfaces as well. For all of these purposes, we dilute the concentrate 1:20.
