Black Swallow Living Soils

EM-1 Microbial Inoculant

EM-1 Microbial Inoculant

We use this in our orchard for all trees (both in our experimental orchard and nursery stock) as the effective microbe component of our holistic spray system. You can download the holistic spray recipe here.

EM-1 contains three groups of beneficial microbes (Yeast, Photosynthetic Bacteria, and Lactic Acid Bacteria) that work together to improve soil and plant health. By increasing the number and diversity of microbes in the soil, EM-1 helps to increase nutrient bioavailability for plants. It also improves the health of other beneficial organism like mycorrhizae and earth worms. Apply as a soil drench or foliar spray. 

Foliar Spray: 5-10L/Ha 

Soil Remediation : 5L/m2

You can extend the use of this product by brewing it following these directions.
