Microbes: Applications in Agriculture: Volume I, Elementary
Applications, 1st edition; book was also
published and marketed under
several minor variants of this title, including EM Beneficial Microbes
Applications in Agriculture: Volume I, Elementary Applications.
(book was available,
when in publication,
in both digital electronic form and printed/bound book form)
This book is no longer available. This book, along with my other books
on this topic, were totally removed from the marketplace in 2010 or
earlier largely because they were being extensively and flagrantly
pirated by copyright violators (see more detailed notes below).
Note from Vinny: This book has been removed from sale in all
venues. Copies of this book are NOT available from me. Please do not
send me money (as so many have tried to do) in the hopes that I may
send you a copy; I cannot and will not do that. Rather, if you insist
upon sending me unsolicited and uninvited funds in the hopes that I
will send you a copy of the book, I will accept the funds as a donation
to support my work and will NOT refund or return the funds to the
sender, and the sender will not receive any product in return.
Details: Book History
This was a largely non-technical book, largely for farmers,
on applications of beneficial SAMT4 microbial consortia (syntropic
antioxidative microbes type 4 consortia) in agriculture, and
particularly in sustainable agriculture.
The Piracy Problem, aka Theft
Unfortunately, a corollary downside of the popularity of the
book was that the PDF ebook version -- despite the presence of
copyright notices -- was widely pirated, and web searches have
consistently indicated that not only had numerous copies of the ebook
been widely distributed by pirates (i.e., thieves), but that, at any
given time, at least two or three websites were blatantly offering
illegal pirated versions of the ebook online (I have found via
experience that most of these sites totally ignore takedown requests
sent by email).
Because of the widespread piracy
and also because the book was by that time in need of extensive
revision, I decided in 2009 to cease all sales of both the print
version and the ebook version of the book, and I notified the publisher
and all larger resellers of the book of my decision. The book was, in
short order, totally pulled from sale in all legitimate venues.
A Cautionary Note Regarding
of the Book
If you should encounter anyone, whether online (i.e., via a
website, forum or list group) or offline who is offering copies of this
book, whether free or for sale, please be advised that all such copies
are illegal pirated versions of my ebook that are being distributed in
blatant violation of the copyright, and in violation of my wishes.
Worse, I do not receive any remuneration for my work when these illegal
copies are distributed. Each of these distributors or sellers are, in
reality, stealing from me.
is the description for the now discontinued version/edition:
general application guidelines and notes for
using antioxidative and syntropic beneficial
microbial (SAM) consortia in
commonly-encountered agricultural, composting, pond, and waste
treatment settings. Unlike my first book, which was entitled Fermentation
which dealt solely with brewing SAM-fermented secondary products, this
book offers application guidelines for use of SAM in various settings.
This book is the first, and the most elementary or basic, in an
eventual series of books which will offer guidelines for
employing beneficial microbial consortia in
sophisticated and demanding applications. As the first volume in the
series, the current applications book targets primarily basic and
commonly-encountered applications in agriculture and related fields,
including odor management, composting, and managing ponds and other
bodies of water which exhibit waste buildup problems.
