The Soil and Land Management Services unit of ARDC Bajo has now established Effective Microorganism (EM) mother plant on station. It is a collaborative activity with NSSC and SAP, the EM research organization based at Thailand. The EM plant capacity is about 2000 litres. The Centre will now be able to meet demands from farmers, schools and various other institutions based at west central region. We would like to thank Mr. Koshoji Toru of EMRO, B. B. Rai of SAP and National Soil Services Centre for their expertise and support.
