Who Invented EM-1?Updated 6 months ago

EM-1 (Effective Microorganisms) was invented by Professor Teruo Higa, a Japanese agricultural scientist. Professor Higa developed EM-1 in the 1980s while he was a professor at the University of the Ryukyus in Okinawa, Japan. His invention of EM-1 marked a significant advancement in the field of sustainable agriculture and environmental management.

Professor Higa's work was based on the discovery that a combination of various beneficial natural microorganisms, such as lactic acid bacteria, yeasts, and phototrophic bacteria, could positively influence the environment and enhance agricultural productivity when applied together. This led to the development of the EM-1 microbial consortia, which has since found widespread use across multiple fields globally.
