The application rate to apply this is

100 to 1 for Lawns 2.5 Tbsp to 1 gallon of water
250 to 1 for Shrubs 1 Tbsp to 2 gallon of water

  Please read below to fully understand the dilution ratios
EM has excellent results with:

  • Higher yields Improved soil structure, leading to better aeration and water holding capacity  
  • Improved nutrient availability, leading to lower fertilizer requirements and higher fertilizer utilization of applied inputs  
  • Lower disease pressure by developing a disease suppressive soil  
  • Lower requirements for pesticides  
  • Improved quality of produce & greater storage ability 
  • Improved animal performance by creating healthy living environments and improved digestion  
  • Restoring waterways and enhancing riparian areas

Dilution Rates

Basically, I determined that it would be a good idea to experiment with using lesser amounts of EM (the lower end of the scale below), particularly if you are having trouble diluting it with sufficient water. As shown below, I would like to see at least a 1:250 dilution for foliar sprays and a 1:100 for turf and soil, and I believe that 85 ml (1/3 cup) of EM per thousand square feet would be a good place to start:.

  • 1:10000 - for daily use, such as through an irrigation system
  • 1:1000 - for weekly foliar use; 20-125 ml of EM per 1000 sq ft
  • 1:100-1:250 - for monthly use as a foliar feed; higher dilution (1:250) is better if possible;
  • 85-500 ml of EM per 1000 sq ft 1:50 - for monthly/seasonal use on turf and as a soil drench; higher dilution (1:100) is better if possible;  
  • 85-500 ml of EM per 1000 sq ft 1:1000 - for soaking seeds; 5-10 minutes only, as some seed may ferment after too long.

I think that perhaps the dilution ratio is more important than the actual rate of application.
Notes for Lawn Applications.
In Vinny Pinto's book on agricultural EM use, he suggests ratios of anywhere from 1:100 to 1:1000, but he says not to apply to tender leaves below 1:300. He generally suggests 85 ml per 1000 sq ft, at least 3 times a year and preferable more like once a month for the first couple of years.

Trees and flowering plants 1:1000 or 2 Tbsp. per gallon of water Spray soil and foliage with dilution for every season. DO NOT spray blooms or they may drop. Prepare soil and let sit for one month before seeding. Add EM weekly while watering Apply to soil when preparing for fall season.

The many researchers use widely varying application rates and dilutions in agriculture with much success. I believe we should begin experimenting with using less EM and higher dilutions (more water). It seems to me that 1/3 cup (85 ml) per thousand square feet would be a good place to start. This would make it easier to have higher dilutions.

I think that 1:100 should perhaps be a minimum for foliar and crop applications. If you can't use that much water, try using less EM until you have that 1:100 ratio. If you can use more water, do so.
Remember how 1:500 outperformed 1:100 in the one trial and how 10 ml per 1000 sq ft was better than higher amounts in the other?
Another trend is that regular applications are important, particularly in the first couple of years.

 Implementing EM into Gardens and Farms 

Seed Treatment: Soak seeds one day before planting in a 1:10000 EM / water solution. If the seed cannot be soaked, moisten the seed before planting with the same 1:10000 EM / water solution.
Transplanting: Water-in new transplants with a 1:750 EM /water solution. EM can be added with other products, such as organic fertilizers, mineral supplements and compost teas during this process.
Foliar Treatments: Apply EM with a sprayer at a 1:500 EM / water dilution rate.
Application frequency should be every 2-6 weeks depending on conditions and objectives. Approximately 10 Litres / hectare of EM should be applied during a foliar treatment. If total spray rate is less than 1000 Litres / hectare and more EM is needed for desired results a lower dilution rate, 1:250, may be necessary. Treat a smaller test plot with the lower dilution rate and monitor the crop response for 24-48 hours before treating the entire crop.

 Soil Treatment: Add EM to irrigation water at a rate of 50 Litres of EM per hectare. This can be done 4-8 times a year depending on climate. Dry or cold climates require more frequent treatments. If you do not irrigate, EM can be drilled into soil at a 8-15cm depth and a rate of 50 litres per hectare.

You can use Probiotics Soil Enrichment to:Improve the nutritional uptake efficiency of plants Increase seed germination Enrich the soil in residential lawns and gardens Nurture healthy trees and flowers Usage Guide: Probiotics Soil Enrichment is a concentrated formula and should be diluted with water. Dilute 1-2 tablespoons Soil Enrichment per gallon of water and apply directly to the soil around the base of the plant.

Cover Cropping: Apply EM as a foliar treatment at a 1:100 EM / water dilution rate just before or after the cover crop is incorporated back into the soil. Produced through a natural fermentation process, SCD Probiotics Soil Enrichment serves as a cost-effective alternative to chemical additives. Enhanced levels of phototrophic non-sulfur bacteria (PNSB) have powerful detoxifying anti-oxidant properties that help enrich the soil and improve plant performance.. 

Use weekly throughout the growing season.
When using as a seed soak, dilute 1 tablespoon of Probiotics Soil Enrichment per ½ gallon of water and soak for 24 hours.
Note: Store at room temperature and away from direct sunlight. The live and active bacteria may cause sediment to occur. This is natural and does not impact the efficacy of the product.
