How to Activate your EM-1- Activation is done purely for economical reasons. It is not a “dilution” of the original product. Activation does not change how the product performs in any way. Activated EM•1 can be used instead of the original EM•1 solution. However, it is inferior in regards to stability and cannot store as long as the original product. This solution cannot act as a starter solution to make endless generation. The Activated EM•1 should be used within 30 to 60 days after it is made.

Do not store EM·1® in direct sunlight. Store in closed container at room temperature. Do not freeze. Also available in a 1 Gallon size as well as a 5 Gallon (drop shipped) - Call us for a shipping quote!  1-800-540-9181

Basic recipe for activation. Warm Water 20 parts (110º-120ºF)EM•1 1 part, Molasses 1 part, Airtight Container, pH Meter or paper, Thermometer. Pour Molasses into container. Add hot water equal to 2x the amount of molasses. Water should be about 160-170ºF. Add cooler water until container is almost full (leave room for EM•1!). Make sure temperature is no higher than 120ºF. Add EM•1. Check the pH of the solution before closing and make a note of starting pH. Close container. Affix airlock if desired. Or, you will need to open container several times during fermentation to release pressure. Not doing so can cause the container to rupture. Check the pH of the solution in 24 hours and daily thereafter. Once the pH drops below 4.0 allow Activated EM to mature for an additional 7-10 days before using. The Use of Activated EM 1 in field crops, / Greenhouse and Nursery Applications,  / Soil Treatment,  / Eliminate Odors,  / Lawn Treatment,  / Composting
