How EM works

Lactic acid bacteria, yeast and phototrophic bacteria contained in EM-1 have the ability to ferment organic substances. Compost fermented and decomposed by EM is broken down in the soil and absorbed by plants. Also, EM contains many useful components to promote plant growth.

What is EM?

EM∗ is a people-friendly and environmentally safe product of EMRO (EM Research Organization) that achieves synergistic effects by combining beneficial microorganisms which exist in nature, such as lactic acid bacteria, yeast and phototrophic bacteria.

Demand for fresh, organic food is growing

And now Inda and colleagues are on a visit to another organic farm outside Yangon – with the wonderful name Sein Lann, fresh green. Inspiring.
The farm exports 3 tons of organic produce to Singapore each week

Inda met up with the bokashi expert at the Korean-Myanmar Partnership, Post-Harvest Technology Training Center, Htone Bo, outside Mandalay.
They have been working with EM for many years, run training courses in how to use agricultural bokashi and EM, along with many other subjects. A good partner for us in the future.
Thank you!
