Dr. Teruo Higa: The Pioneer of Effective Microorganisms

Since the beginning of Dr. Teruo Higa’s life, agriculture and science have always been major influence in all of his life choices. From a very young age, he decided that he would become trailblazer in the agricultural field. He graduated from the Agricultural Department of Ryukus University where he also completed his doctorate in Agricultural Research. In 1970 he was invited to be became an instructor at Ryukus University and 10 years after that, he became professor of the university.

Dr. Higa is best known for his discovery for EM Technology® or Effective Microorganisms®. However, this incredible discovery occurred by accident. In the 1960’s, microorganisms were constantly being being studied, all across the globe, for many different applications. One day, Dr. Higa was working in the lab and accidentally spilled microorganisms near some shrubs. A few days later, he noticed that those shrubs had grown extremely well. Dr. Higa grew up farming and knew that farmers often only had the choice of expensive chemical pesticides and treatments for their crops. He decided to find a natural method through the use of beneficial microorganisms that would help relieve the farmers of their chemical dependencies.

Based off of this accidental discovery, Dr. Higa experimented throughout the years to discover the optimal combination of microorganisms and finally create the first use of EM Technology. The first creation is known as EM-1. EM-1 is a soil conditioner that can be used on gardens or crops. The soil conditioner creates healthy soil to allow plants and vegetables grow to their maximum potential. EM-1, is a liquid bacterial product that is made up of three main microorganisms. These microorganisms are Yeast, Photosynthetic Bacteria, and Lactic Acid Bacteria. All products using EM Technology contain EM-1 in some part of their manufacturing process. However, being a soil conditioner is not the only application of the EM Technology.

Another product produced from EM Technology is PRO EM-1. PRO EM-1 is a liquid probiotic supplement that supports healthy digestive and immune systems, supports weight loss, improves absorption of food nutrients and aids in controlling yeast infections.

EM Technology has also assisted in supporting oral health. Dr. Don's Antioxidant Oral Hygiene products helps prevent food from sticking to teeth and in-between teeth and gums. These products also deep clean and polish your teeth, ordinary toothpaste cannot compete with this kind of EM Technology.

Potent and nutritious health drinks have been created thanks to the EM Technology. EM-X Gold is a potent health drink formed from the effective microorganisms. This drink can help strengthen the immune system, reduce risk of infection, reduce allergies, improve the body’s acid/alkaline balance and increases the decontamination of your organs.

EM Technology has not only helped agriculture, but it also has assisted in the fields of livestock, the environment, construction, industry and health. Dr. Higa’s brilliant discovery of EM Technology has been introduced in more than 140 countries worldwide. Teraganix is the exclusive distributor of EM Technology products. These products are available on their website by visiting their online store.

Overwintering Plants & Getting Started Before Spring

What is overwintering?

Overwintering is the process of helping your plants survive through harsh winter conditions. Not all plants are made to withstand the winter weather, especially if you live in an area that experiences freezing temperatures around this time of year. There are a number of different steps you can take to help your plants survive through the winter. This will ensure that your plants will be able to be replanted or will bloom again once spring comes along.

Overwintering can take place in a lot of different ways. Most commonly, people take their plants that have been planted in containers and bring them inside. These kinds of plants can be left in a basement, garage or other protected area. Letting your plants still get exposed to the cold weather is okay, but you don't want to leave them out there in the elements completely unprotected. Some people may even dig up certain plants and bring them inside in a container, and then are able to replant them in the spring time.

Another method of overwintering your plants is simply covering them outdoors. Depending on the type of plant, you may be able to protect it with some burlap, but other types of plants can be covered with natural substances such as leaves. You can simply put wire around your plants, fill the area with leaves or hay, or even cover it in burlap, and it should help protect your plants throughout the winter. These can then be removed in the spring, allowing your plant to flourish naturally under warmer weather. There are many other types of methods for overwintering your plants, make sure to do your research on what type of overwintering will work best for your plants.

How To Transition To Overwintering

Some people who use containers for their plants often start their plants indoors. You can start your container plants indoors, so that when spring comes along, they will be ready to be planted outside. This is a great way to allow your plants time to grow and bloom earlier and last longer throughout the year. If you start your plants indoors, make sure that they are getting a good source of light, as well as the nutrients and water that they will need to succeed when the time comes for them to be placed outdoors. Planting your plants at the right time in the spring is also essential. Make sure you know when is the best time for your plants to be placed outdoors so that they will be able to grow properly when the time comes.
