So sorry but here is a response:
Bokashi is a Japanese form of compost, kinda but diffent. Here is my
limited understanding of it.
The bokashi is made from a number of things rice hulls, rice stalks, wheat
bran etc into which is inoculated microbrials, in the case of EM a certain
strain the Higa ... devised up which are interesting in the sense that they

YOu inoculate this medium and then put in into the soil or dry it and use
it to treat compost so that you have fungal compost instead of putrifying
compost. It is a very different type of thing. I've used it to make lots

EM are effective microorganisms which Dr. Higa has figured out work
together synergestically. They are in a liquid solution which is used in
very diluted amounts similar to homeopathic. They are activated by
Molasses and it can be used for all types of applications like cleaning
your house, in your laundry etc... It is also used extensively with
livestock for their digestion and to keep the flies down and do all kinds
of other beneficial things.

There are also workbooks that explain how to use it. I took a class and we
have made it in groups in Houston.
Imagine being able to grow tomatoes in the same spot year after year

a much higher brix level if you were to check the produce. I could go on
but check out the data.
It is used in many countries from Central America, to Asia to Africa,
