Bokashi

What is Bokashi?

Golden roots Bokashi is a medium of wheat bran mixed with a culture of anaerobic and aerobic, non-chemical, non-toxic (eco-friendly), and non-pathogenic beneficial microorganisms. Bokashi encourages the growth of beneficial microbes indigenous to the environment. As well as growing in numbers, their capabilities continue to grow and effectively bio-remediate soil, waste materials, and water. The diversity of Bokashi is unique and highly effective in a variety of bio-applications.

What is Bio-remediation?

Microorganisms are used to degrade organic contaminants in soil, groundwater, sludge, and solids. The microorganisms break down contaminants by using them as an energy source or co-metabolizing them with an energy source.
