which was integrated into the concepts of Nature Farming.
From small beginnings, the network moved on to facilitate research, information, producing EM, advising all interested
on Nature Farming and training people from all walks of life. The network helped organize major conferences on
Kyusei Nature Farming in four continents and was instrumental in presenting the identity of Nature Farming at
international fora such as the IFOAM conferences. The network was also responsible for planting seeds of interest
on the technology of Effective Microorganisms in all continents of the world and today EM is being blended into even
