EM in Sri Lanka

APNAN visited a farmer living near the EM unit at Homagama in Sri Lanka. The farmer established his home garden using EM, and this plot of 320 sq. meters has over 15 types of vegetables and fruits for home consumption.

In the early days, he applied chemicals to his allotment – especially for chilies. However he noticed that with time, yield declined. On a visit to the EM unit, he was told of the technology, which he adopted. At present, he is an avid enthusiast of EM and Nature Farming, and over the past 6 months, his fields have produced greater yields, which have made him happy and healthy.

Although a beginner, he is a real enthusiast of EM – and is reading as much literature as possible. The EM unit is also happy about this and will use these fields to hold workshops for the people of the area to promote EM technology.
