Environmental protection has the foremost importance in the modern day lifestyles of mankind. EM (effective microorganisms) is a biofertilizer consisting of a mixed culture of potentially usefull microorganisms. EM incorporate a mixture of live natural cultures of microorganisms isolated from fertile soils which might be used to enhance crop production. EM play a vital role to suppress plant pathogen and diseases. EM also helps to to improve photosynthetic efficiency and biological nitrogen fixation. EM includes mixed cultures of beneficial micro-organisms such as photosynthetic bacteria, lactobacilli, yeasts and Actinomycetes. EM can improve the quality and yield of vegetables by using lowering the incidence of pests and diseases, and via protecting in opposition to weeds, thereby contributing to sustainable agriculture. Effective Microorganisms is also help to detoxify our landfills, decontaminate our environment, and promote highly sustainable, closed-cycle agricultural and organic waste treatment methods worldwide.
