Title: The History of One Organics Effective Microorganisms

The History of One Organics Effective
Effective Microorganisms are used in agriculture
and many different growing environments
depending on the needs of the end users. The
original EMs were developed by Professor Teruo
Higa, and are known the world over as EM1. One
Organic being a certified organic seedling
nursery started to research the power of EMs
and decided to develop their own beneficial
bacteria to use in the nursery and in farming.
This development started in 2009 and still
continues to this day with thousands of clients
throughout Australia and other parts of the world
using these powerful organisms.
The motivation for One Organic to producte its
own effective microorganisms em was driven by a
need to be in control of the process. The
company originally bought EMs from other
companies to trial them and whilst the results
were excellent it was costly and being an
innovative company, they felt the need to
produce their own in order to better meet the
needs of their clients.
You see One Organic has thousands of clients
mostly home gardeners that need help to insure
their gardens are productive. In the early days
One Organic used to direct their clients to buy
organic compost and effective micro-organisms
from other companies but the feedback that they
received was that the products were too
expensive and complicated to produce and also
required time to prepare.
Their clients had busy lives running businesses
and their family lives and often they would
become distracted half way through the process
and the effective microorganisms would spoil
which would result in a loss of time and money.
Additionally, sometimes their organisms would
not keep and create more negative outcomes than
positive ones. Another motivation for producing
its own microorganisms was so that they could be
used in livestock management and in the
production of organic compost which could be
purchased by their clients and used around the
One Organic set about creating beneficial
bacterias that were powerful and ready to use
but it was most important to ensure that the end
product was stable effective and ready to use
plus had a long shelf life, so it was necessary
to do many controlled trials of the bacterias
both in the nursery and on the farm to gauge the
outcomes. This was not an easy task as there
were many variables such as soil conditions
which vary from one part of Australia to the next
and if they were to be sold on an international
level there would be further challenges.
