The use of effective microorganism (EM.1® ) consortium along with compost may overcome harmful effects caused by chemical fertilizer on crops production.

Application of EM.1® in crop production has been researched widely and various observations outlined.

The observations reveal that application of EM.1® in farming resulted to just as good plant growth or even better than conventional farming, and that quality of plant products was superior to products of conventional farming. Other worthwhile observations to note in the use of EM.1® in farming include:

  • 1. Promotion of germination, plant establishment, flowering, fruiting, and ripening of plants.
  • 2. Improved physical, chemical, and biological environments of the soil
  • 3. Suppressed soil-borne pathogens and pests.
  • 4. Enhanced the photosynthetic capacity of crops.
  • 5. Increased efficacy of organic matter as a fertilizer.

Application was done to 6 treatments of three replica applied to Amaranths (Mchicha) and Swiss Chards size 0.75m x 1.5m. Irrigation was applied daily irrigation mornings and evenings.

Results Indicates That

  • 1. Significant Increase in Productivity on the application of EM.1® in Vegetables
  • 2. Use of EM.1® in a organic matter gives more favourable results than on bare soil
  • 3. Use of EM.1® in organic matter – solid and liquid application gives more favourable results
  • 4. Taste improvement in the application of EM.1®
  • 5. Soil fertility improved
  • 6. Results inline with other studies elsewhere

Results From Aquaculture

The study was on the Wazo hill site which was one among the rehabilitation sites programmes to make use of abandoned pits and convert them into aquatic ponds.

The study was a research project of a third-year university of Dar Es Salaam student under Fisheries and Aquaculture Mr Emmanuel Kwilasa. EMTECH Foundation was a co-partner on this study by providing the feed addictive known as Feedpro Bokashi and EM.1® solution.

Specific Objectives of the study was to, compare the growth rate of the Tilapia fish with and without EM.1® and assess the nutrient (ammonia nitrate in both pond.

Methodology: the ponds were selected and some modification were made the size of the ponds were4.5mand 3m with 1.5 depth water holding capacity was 20,250litres. The portion with Em was 3.5mand 3m and 1.5 m depth water holding capacity was 15,750litres. Thepond with EM.1® was introduced with 72 fries of Nile Tilapia while the one without EM.1® was 96. Both had the same length of 0.3g and 1. 8cm.Thefish feeds were the same except the pond with EM.1® Bokashi was added at a rate of 1% and 1/2litre EM.1® solution on weekly bases.

The objectives of this study were to test layers’ egg productivity by Bm-2 supplement in diets.

Enrichment of birds feed especially chicken with EM.1® is an organic way to increases growth rate, egg production and reproductive performance. EM.1® is widely used in poultry farming because it is a totally natural and effective method for ensuring healthy poultry and is ideal for use on both commercial organic farming units as well as domestic flocks.

Trial results in Tanzania involved:

Layers:  50 layes, 10 weeks old from a famer – non EM.1®  – 3 died; 4 treatments (BB, EE, CC, BEBE with 3 replica, 83 daily monitoring and Commercial feed applied

Broilers: 100 commercial old day chick, Without EM.1®  for 1 week – grooming, 4 treatment as for layers, 6 weeks monitoring period also, and Commercial feeds were applied to the chicken – except for the treatments applied.


No odor smell in the pens (Consisted with several other studies), Strong egg shell –colorful, Yellow York on the EM.1®  eggs, Large eggs, Good taste eggs and meat and EM.1®  treated chickens – more blood than non-treated.


There was significant increase in the productivity of the layers and growth of broilers following the application of EM.1® technology to feeds, drinking water and both on feeds and drinking water.

Elsewhere around the world, similar studies have recorded the similar results. This puts more emphasis on the need to employ and integrate EM.1® technology into Tanzanian poultry farming to promote productivity in an organic way.

The huge quantity of organic waste can be converted into reusable by-product through composting.

This study was conducted to assess and characterize the household organic waste compost inoculated with Effective Microorganisms (EM.1®). The compost was prepared using organic waste collected from 50 households situated in the suburban-Zanzibar. Three compost piles were made; treated as compost without EM.1® (control), compost with EM.1® and compost with EM.1® plus chicken manure. The compost wereanalyzed for pH, Electrical Conductivity (EC), Organic matter (OM), Organic Carbon (OC), N, P, K, Ca, Mg, Na and C/N ratio. Results revealed that the compost inoculated with EM.1® consortium decomposed faster (40 days) compared to 60 days for control compost.

The physicochemical data showed that pH and EC of the compostdecreaseas EM.1® consortium inoculated to the compost. N and K contents of the compost treated with EM.1® were slightly higher that ranges between 0.19%-0.28% and 0.3%-0.6% compared to controlwhichwas0.16% and 0.06% respectively. However, P contents remained the same in all treatments while C/N ratio for all treatments ranged between 11:1 to15:1, which is a typicalvalue for compost manure. This researchsuggests that the application of EM.1® is suitable for enhancing decomposition process and influencing the physicochemical properties of the compost.
