We are manufacturing and propagating EM in India under agreement with EMRO, Japan. EM technology was developed by Dr. Teruo Higa in Japan.
EM stands for ‘Effective Microorganisms’. It is a consortium of different strains of beneficial and effective microorganisms, both aerobic and anaerobic in nature. It is processed by EMRO personnel under strict quality standard in Maple Orgtech Kolkata. These organisms are collected from the natural environment and not imported, exotic or genetically engineered. The main microbes are Lactobacillus, Photosynthetic bacteria, yeast.
Application of Maple EM in Aquaculture
Reduction in Capital outlay:
Reduction in chemical input
Better disease control.
Feed cost reduction.
Increase in yield:
Size and numbers.
Improvement in quality:
No earthy smell.
Better shelf life.
Maple EM.1™ reduces the capital outlay drastically.
Use of Maple EM.1™ facilitates the culture of fish and prawns without chemicals.
It reduces the quanity of sludge produced.
It eliminates Ammonia, Methane and Hydrogen sulphide which are common in fish/prawn cultivation.
It helps to keep water clean and hence does not require repeated changing.
Maple EM.1™ helps in suppressing algal colonies from bodies of fish/prawns, thus giving better growth.
Fish and prawns produced are of higher quality and quantity.
Feed conversion ratio (FCR) improves
Mortality of fish and prawns can be reduced significantly.
It increases the digestive process in animal as well as fish.
It suppresses stomach related diseases both in animal & Fish.
It improves animal/Fish Fecundity.
Continuous use of Animal Bokashi lowers the requirements of regular medicines, antibiotics, hence it helps to reduces the cost of production
