Cutting the hype on EM bokashi (III)

[start quote]   [cab] My gut feeling is that you could obtain a very similar result with glucose and lots of Lactobacillus, and that whats really happening is that the bran is being broken down to sugar thats being acted on by lactic acid bacteria, thats getting the pH low enough to cause the proteins to come into solution, what you’re left with is sort of part ensilaged, part decomposed, and its simply a means to jump start the whole decomposition process. And my gut feeling is that the whole ‘EM’ thing is rather simpler than they’re letting on.

In principle, if it is primarily ensilaging, then yes, its a good prelude to composting.     [end quote]
