EM•Probio is a naturally fermented biostimulant and live microbial inoculant. It is a concentrated consortium of essential microorganisms that are known to work synergistically, thus providing great benefits to your soil and plants. Think of it as probiotics for plants.
When EM•Probio is incorporated into a regular feeding or watering schedule, it improves nutrient uptake in the plants root system. This is known to stimulate Trichoderma and Mycorrhizal activity.
Regular use of EM•Probio will provide your plants with a greater resistance against disease and pests from ‘competitive exclusion’; they out-compete pathogens for space by inoculating the leaf surfaces with beneficial microbes. The cumulative effect of these functions is a stronger and healthier plant which typically results in higher yielding crops of greater nutrient density.
There are many different names for this liquid mixture on the market – emro, EM-1, EM1, etc. The original strains in EM•Probio are made by microbiologists who studied under the great Dr. Teruo Higa. Higa was the first to discover the amazing benefits of this all-star team of microorganisms in the late 1970’s.
EM•Probio is proudly made in Canada using 99.99% Alberta sourced ingredients.
The Microbe All-Star Team:
EM•Probio is developed using three principal organisms, namely Photosynthetic bacteria, Lactic acid bacteria and Yeasts.
Many of the species are facultative anaerobes; they can grow with or without oxygen because they can metabolize energy aerobically or anaerobically.
