These three processes work simultaneously together on sustainable agriculture and horticulture. Knowledge transfer, research and development are of paramount importance at Agriton and the EM Technology developed by Prof. dr. Dr. Teruo Higa from the University of the Ryukyus, Okinawa, Japan forms the basis for this. Effective Microorganisms (EM) can be used in many ways for soil, plants, humans and animals.
