What is EM Farming? I was reading an article on organic sustainable farming and came across the term EM farming, yet I had never heard of this technology before. EM stands for Effective Micro-Organisms and when used in farming this technique can bring harvest to a new level.
EM farming has been used in countries that don’t have access to fertilizers and pesticides to aid in crop production. And while it’s been in practice for a number of years it was mostly used in developing countries.
So what is it exactly and how is it of beneficial use? You won’t find a comprehensive definition on Wikipedia – which was a bit disappointing, but there is a plethora of other sites that have taken up the slack.
