Effects and benefits of Effective Microorganisms in agriculture and farming

There are a wide range of applications for Effective Microorganisms (EM), both in conventional and organic agriculture. The EM technology in farming and agriculture creates an optimum environment in the soil and on foliar surfaces, while simultaneously activating the organisms in the soil, resulting in faster heating of the soil and an earlier start of the growing season in spring.

  • Increase in humus formation
  • Improved soil condition leading to reduced erosion
  • Faster heating of soil
  • More vital and resistant plants
  • No groundwater pollution
  • Rich yield of high-quality food
  • Reduction of fertiliser costs

Applications for

Our products cannot unfortunately be applied as granules nor freeze-dried because of their complexity. Many good qualities would be lost with the current technology.

Après la fermentation, la valeur du pH devrait se situer entre 3,5 – 3,8.

EM Active is approved as a soil additive and FHE (Fermented Herbs Extract) as a supplementary feed, not as human consumption. For consumption, we introduce the approved food products Manju and Multi Impuls.

These are deposited yeast particles. They do not affect product quality.

Yes, our products are very stable and can be used with conventional herbicides/pesticides for a certain time (<12 hours). But it is important that they are only added in a diluted solution, that is, metered at the very end in the injection or casting solution.
With spray treatments, they should be filled in the syringe as the last component, as a watering additive best is automatically in the irrigation line, but they should not be filled together with concentrated fertiliser in the fertiliser mixer.

Straw and soil treatment with Effective Microorganisms - 50 % mycotoxin reduction.

Effective Microorganisms (EM) in agriculture promote the regenerative powers of nature and are particularly effective in the anaerobic zone of the soil. By treating crop residues with MK Soil (EM Active), rotting is prevented and the incorporated organic material is converted into humus more quickly and easily. A faster warming of the soil in spring and thus earlier cultivation times are the result of this application. The reduction of vomitoxin of up to 50 % also brings clear results, pathogenic organisms (e.g. Fusarium fungi) are clearly suppressed.

Organic seed - cultural asset and economic factor

Organically cultivated vegetables, herbs and flower specialities are much more in demand in nurseries today than they were a few years ago. Customers are increasingly turning to organic products, and rarities for the balcony, terrace or home garden are becoming just as popular. Organic seed-resistant varieties are already playing an increasingly important role in everyday gardening and will become even more important in the future, because it is clear that only seed-resistant varieties guarantee quality for generations. In contrast to hybrid varieties, seed-resistant varieties pass on their characteristics to subsequent generations. This means that they can be propagated in a sensible way. Healthy soils and substrates are also indispensable for this. This is proven by the practical experience of the Upper Austrian family business Multikraft, which has always focused on sustainable quality.

An ecological attitude and sustainable variety development thus become basic requirements for the gardener to meet all these demands, to obtain his own seeds and to develop regionally adapted varieties. It is also essential to cultivate in sets, which ensures that harvestable produce is produced throughout the season. Simple means are used to ensure that everything runs smoothly: EM ceramic powder is added to the seeds and supports their germination capacity. For lasting positive results, the seed is watered with the Multikraft products MK Soil and Terrafert Soil including EM ceramic powder. The results are clear to see! The seeds germinate significantly better and more evenly.

Healthy soil, robust plants with Plant Power products - EM Agriculture

Plant strengthening agents with Effective Microorganisms (e.g. EM Active), such as those offered by Multikraft in the Plant Power Profi line, are used very successfully on a large scale for ornamental plants, vegetable growing or woody plants - both in conventional and organic farms. They promote the health and growth of plants, increase their stress resistance, attract beneficial insects and ensure an ecological balance. Multikraft's Plant Power products are either applied with the irrigation water, thereby stimulating soil life, or sprayed onto the plants, forming a kind of protective coating. In this way, plants are strengthened via the root - can better absorb the nutrients present in the soil - and the leaf and thus develop a natural defence against pests and fungi.
