I was wondering if anyone had used this, if it was helpful, what is the best way to apply, ect. I just started making some up as supplement to take for myself, as its the cheapest way to get a well recommended probiotic, but it says agricultural use, so thought I'd ask my gardening forums. :)
I have no idea? I looked and read the product info though. If it says you can take it orally, nad you have already ordered it, then give it a try. The only culutres i saw in the ingredient list are lactic cultures. The one I take "contains 10 certified non-toxic cultures labeled as Class 1 agents" http://www.gohtn.net/productdetail/1050.asp
You might get more response in the healthy Living forum, if you haven't already posted there. Edited to say, I reread you post, and think I understand your question better. You are already taking it for yourself and wanted to know how it would work in the garden? So my answer is of no help, sorry. I have never used any probiotics in the garden. I use beneficial microbes though. It is called aqua-nu with Iodine.
Hi there - I have never had much luck with routine composting. My bins never heat up and my husband complains about the smell that our under the sink compost vege container acquired. So I decided to try "bokashi" composting. I bought EM, activated them, mixed them with bran, then added veges etc and buried the product all over the yard (I havent mentioned this to any neighbors mind you). I got instructions from http://www.cityfarmer.org/bokashi.html So far, it has worked well. The instructions with the EM also talked about activating some and just putting it in the garden but, I havent had the time to try that. I dont know what its supposed to do anyway. To my nose the EM are most likely some type of yeast but I dont know for sure. Whatever they are, they change organic waste into soil pretty quickly with a smell more like really strong rising bread than sewage. Please let us know if you try the EM straight or activated on your garden and what the results are!
