Beneficial Microbes for Plants

Hello to all our customers that have purchased our EM organisms,

After a decade of more and more research and with the advancement in technologies, the study of the beneficial microbes for plants has gathered more attention among all of us. I had meant to follow up on the delivery to provide some instruction so my apologies for the delay some people called me and others live in Byron Bay which is where our farm is so I was able to explain face to face.

So for those that have not spoken to me here are the details.

For the best results do the following:

• In the first month take a 1litre spray bottle and add about 20mil and spray on the leaves of any plant on a Mon and Friday the EM’s travel through the leaves down to the root system and into the soil.
• Then on a Wednesday take about 1/4 cup of molasses and blend it up and add it to 10-20litres of water and water the plants.
• This will really kick your garden and soil along.
• After 1 month the ratio is 1ml to 1litre its very powerful.
• I recommend when you use the EM to spray them on the plants it kills disease and help build the sugars in the plant and soil which in turn builds the friendly bacterias
• When your not using them put them in a cool place like the fridge as they are alive bacteria the warmer they are they more they are active and eat keeping them cool will help prolong the life of the EM’s. When you want to use them take them out of the cold and place them in a warm place this will help to make them fully active.
• In a few months, you will have the most amazing soil the complete structure will change you will have loads of worms and grow the most amazing plants that are any type of plant.
• If you live in the country you can use it in your toilet/septic to take away smells.
• If you have animals you can put it on their food and get the most amazing eggs or improve the health of the animal.
• If you have a compost that is smelly because it is anaerobic then you can water it with the EM’s and it will convert the compost in less time and take away any smell.
• Because we are certified organic we make our own compost from untreated sawdust and we convert the sawdust to usable compost in 8 weeks:)

We are farmers and have been producing these EM’s for years just for our Farm and our home Gardners to improve their growing and soil.

Our EM’s are 1 of the best on the market and I don’t know if anyone else in OZ is producing them as far as I know they are not.

Unlike other EM’s when you buy ours they are ready to go you don’t need to prepare them and if they are looked after they last for years.

If you like the results I would really appreciate it if you can tell your friends and family as I would really like to get the product into Australian homes because we make it here and we know its amazing.

This link shows the quality of the veggies we grow using them

Our blog provides a lot of info on application etc

I am preparing a short video on them so you can see just how good they are if you would like a copy just let me know and ill send you a link

I hope this is a help if you need any more information please refer to this link or give me a call.

EM Effective Microorganism

The History of One Organics EM Effective Microorganism’s Part 3

The History of One Organic’s EM Effective Microorganism Part 3

Following on from my previous post on the history of One Organic’s EM Effective Microorganism development once the results from the nursery trials were completed the plants need to be accessed so One Organic enlisted the support of several universities to evaluate the health and vitality of the plants along with medium in which the plants had been grown.

The findings were nothing short of amazing from start to finish the seedings only required 1/3 of the amount of water and because of the addition of the Effective Microorganism’s the plants were able to utilise more efficiently the nutrients in the mix this meant that in the long term there would be a reduction in the cost of materials for additives.

What was also noticed was that the by-product of the plants that didn’t sell were able to be more effectively composted which meant there were opportunities for One Organic to increase its product lines by allowing customers to buy organic compost and a very competitive price as the materials from prior production could be utilised more effectively. This was an unexpected result and totally in-line with One Organic ethos of not wasting anything and trying to maintain low prices to make their plants more affordable to farmers and the domestic farmers.

The results of these trials are not to be understated in a world where water is becoming more scarce and top soils are depleting by the hour and by product from pollution is costs tens of millions to deal with these results were nothing short of remarkable. Upon receiving the news from the universities and witnessing the inhouse results from the trials the directors were inspired to further develop the Effective Microorganism’s with the view to having their customers buy organic compost at the farmers markets they were servicing.

Once these trials were completed there was a round the table meeting between the directors and all the parties involved to see how viable it would be to commence a trial in utilising effective microorganism in agriculture. You see although One Organic was growing in a purpose built nursery that was designed to grow in condition’s as close as possible to nature there was some protection from the elements in terms of insect netting / sun and rain so now was the time to commence the next phase of the trial which would acid test the effective microorganism’s ability to perform in much harsher conditions.

Effective Microorganism EM

The History of One Organic’s Effective Microorganism EM Part 2

The History of One Organic’s Effective Microorganism EM Part 2

Following on from my previous post on the history of One Organic’s Effective Microorganism EM development its important to note that the director came from an industrial engineering and science background so he was well versed in the benchmark testing that would be required to ensure that the final products had solid integrity. The following steps list the process that was defined to produce the desired outcome.

• Research how other companies produced their EM’S
• Identify the world leaders in their area of production.
• Travel to the various producers and have conversations with microbiologists
• Speak to Universities and other scientific organisations to discuss benchmark testing methods and how field / in house trials could take place.
• Once these structures and procedures were documented and agreed upon commence the trials.
Step 1: Produce stable and effective microorganism’s
Step 2: Find ways to extend the shelf life of the product and insure potency
Step 3: Have the bacteria scientifically tested to identify the species and numbers and stress test the product to insure its viability over time.
Step 4: Once the scientific results were available commence an inhouse trial.
Step 5: An inhouse trial commenced in the organic vegetable nursery in Byron Bay whereby one batch of seedlings was given the EM’s over the duration of 1 month and it was compared to another batch of organic seedlings that were not grown using the inhouse EM’s
Step 6: Time lapse cameras were setup to monitor the progress of both the batches so that comparison studies could take place.
Step 7: Both batches were had identical varieties to see if there would be differing results across multiple varieties. Initially the varieties were confined to veggies mostly soft leaf with some brassicas.
Step 8: After one month the soft leaf veggies were inspected and benchmarked for size / health and root development and the conclusion was they the ones that were given the effective microorganisms produced inhouse were more abundant / healthier / advanced more quickly and had better root development. Aside from these results it was also determined that the plants seemed to use less water and be more resilient to the heat.
Step 9: One Organic wanted to see the effect of the effective microorganisms on the brassica’s AND the results were the same as with the soft leafy varieties.
