Bokashi bran is inoculated with a consortia of effective microorganisms, including several species of Lactobacillus. These beneficial microbes aid in nutrient cycling and overall soil fertility. This converted organic matter becomes plant available nutrition that can be taken up by your plants. When Bokashi Bran is directly applied to the soil as a top dress it aids in nutrient cycling and increases the microbial activity in the soil. Additional uses also include animal odor reduction and indoor composting.
