Procedures in preparing effective microorganisms

Control Odors and Flies

1 kilo ripen fruit (any fruit,the riper the better) not rotten
1 kilo molasses
1 litre clean water
yeast and a little salt
place in a jar (not glass) loose fitting lid(gas has to escape)and store in a cool dark place for 5-7 days
after 5-7 days strain,place in a clean jar(not glass,plastic is better),glass jars have been known to explode under pressure.Mixture maybe good for 30 days.

to use mix 1 tablespoon to 1 litre clean water and spray the goat flooring and under the goat house every week or 2 weeks on any other livestock area (pens and stalls)
Forgot to say,if you want to use it on manure only,then spray direct (no mixing with water) weekly.

This is only a very basic way of making EM-1,there are better methods of making it.
Be careful because once the yeast starts to eat the sugars, gas will form and this is when it becomes unstable and the reason for no glass jars or containers,the lid has to be loose enough to allow the gas to escape.

Effective Micro-organisms (EM) Guide

E.M. is an abbreviation for EFFECTIVE MICROORGANISMS Microorganisms are tiny units of life
that are too small to be seen with the naked eye and they exist everywhere in nature. Microorganisms are crucial for maintaining the ecological balance. They carry out chemical processes that make it possible for all other organisms including humans to live. There are friendly guys of the microbial worlds known as beneficial microorganisms and a not so friendly group called pathogens that are
harmful and capable of producing disease, decay and pollution.

EM Sustainable Living

What are Effective Microorganisms (EM's)? 

EM stands for effective microorganisms. EM is an amazing technology discovered and developed
by Dr. Teruo Higa, in the 1980‟s. The secret to EM‟s widespread success is its capacity to naturally
remove harmful toxins and restore nature‟s microbial balance, whether it is on mineral, plant, animal,
or human levels. EM technology has gained rapid recognition and use around the world and is now
used in more than 160 countries and manufactured in more than 60 countries worldwide.
There is nothing new about the technology of Effective Microorganisms. Nature has been using this
technology for billions of years. The breakthrough was in creating a symbiotic alliance of beneficial
microorganisms that create a chain-reaction of healthy by products.
EM‟s are mixed cultures of beneficial natural fermentative microorganisms that can be applied to
increase the necessary microbial diversity needed for living. The use of EM Technology has
broadened in the last two decades from agriculture to water treatment, odour control, animal
husbandry, human health, and numerous other industrial treatments.
