A study was conducted to determine if lactic acid bacteria, when inoculated into soil amended with organic materials, could enhance decomposition and the release of plant nutrients, and increase soil humus formation. The addition of EM 4 to soil amended with fresh green grass increased the growth of cucumber over that of the unamended and fertilized controls, while woodchips appeared to suppress growth. The yield of mustard and radish (tops and roots) were significantly higher with EM 4 at all… Expand
