What makes Efficient Microbes so efficient? EM has created a unique, robust blend of lactic acid bacteria, phototrophic bacteria and yeast, which are all cultured together at the same time - unlike pharmaceutical probiotics, which are typically cultured as single-strains individually, then freeze-dried and combined at a later stage. EM's process gives you a more effective and beneficial probiotic formula, which remains in a live state.

Microbes are involved in the life cycle of every organism on Earth! They play numerous roles in the life cycle of plants, including:

  • Growth
  • Photosynthesis
  • Uptake of nutrients
  • Elimination of harmful toxins
  • Disease prevention

EM Pro-Soil repopulates the soil with a robust blend of beneficial microbes, which helps to regenerate existing bacteria in the soil.

Uses & benefits of EM Pro-Soil:

  • Rehabilitates dead or nutrient-poor soils; improves soil quality
  • Increases plant growth & photosynthesis
  • Minimises soil-borne diseases & pests; improves resistance to disease
  • Promotes the natural balance of nitrogen, phosphorous & potassium levels in the soil
  • Promotes healthy decomposition of humus (stable organic matter particles)
  • Prevents odour-causing anaerobic decay
  • Improves the efficacy of fertilizers
  • Helps to reduce composting turning costs by up to 70-80%!

More about Efficient Microbes Pro-Soil:

  • Registered with the Department of Agriculture under Act 36 of 1947.
  • Not genetically modified, or chemically synthesized; all species are naturally occurring.
  • Contains only the microorganisms that are listed on the United States FDA’s GRAS list (Generally Recognized As Safe).

Great soil booster! Using product for new veggie seedlings & to assist composting. I make a “composting tea” from guinea pig droppings & banana peels (high in Magnesium), water and two capfuls of product. 2 days later I sieve out the solids onto compost heap & pour “tea” over plants.

Bring your garden or potted plants back from the dead! Pro-Soil boosts the soil your plants are in and it shows. Plants seem to almost stand a little bit bolder.

In just two applications our herb plants are looking a lot more perky. Am well pleased with the outcome.

I was a little skeptical when I bought this, but I have noticed sudden growth spurts in some of my plants after applying it to the soil. I never considered microbes before or the effect of chlorinated water on the garden. I am liking this product a lot.

Used this on some herb cuttings, and finally managed to get some sage to root within 10 days. Really good stuff.

Perfect for my cannabis plants! Using this on Freedom Farm Soil to rejuvenate the soil after around week 8.

Using this currently on all our Greenhouse Herbs, Veggies and Medicinals. Shortly after feeding the soil, the plants showed significant results.
