Cutting the hype on EM (IV)

It works well for starting off the composting process on anything you wouldn’t normally be able to compost, but the hype about the ‘effective microorganisms’ doesn’t convince me. Works very well as JB says to start off the composting process for such things as meat, fish, cooked waste, etc; the pH falls to the point where proteins dissolve out as a rich liquour that makes a decent plant food supplement, the remaining material isn’t pleasant to smell but it isn’t totally sickening, and it breaks down at a reasonable speed in compost or just buried.  [end quote]
