Mandarin Oranges
Mandarin Oranges "Satsuma" These Mandarin oranges are not only much bigger and more abundant than those typically found nearby, they are much tastier too. rok-trees

Mandarin Oranges
Mandarin Oranges "Satsuma" A diligent monthly feeding and after a couple years, you should see and taste the difference, just like Mr. Suda, who lives north of Tokyo. rok-trees
Mandarin Oranges
Mandarin Oranges "Satsuma" Given the larger size of fruit trees, Be-1 application should be proportional to tree size and it takes a little longer to see results. rok-trees
Mandarin Oranges
Mandarin Oranges "Satsuma" Sweeter and stronger taste than all other citrus fruits, though closely related to tangerines, mandarin oranges (Citrus reticulata) are a holiday favorite in Japan and traditionally given as gifts during New Year holidays. rok-trees
Taro
Taro "Satoimo" Taro is found all over Polynesia and Asia. In Japan, these fiber-rich corms are called "Satoimo," which means "sweet taro" and is usually broiled. Watch out, they can be a bit slimy. rok-potatoes rok-roots

Taro
Taro "Satoimo" Fed only a little Be-1, compared with typical plants, this bunch of sweet taro from a Japanese farmer has about three times the number of baby tubers, also called "Keiki" in Hawaiian. rok-potatoes rok-roots
Taro
Taro "Satoimo" A member of the Araceae family, Taro ("Kalo" in Hawaiian) plants are probably best known for the purple and creamy "poi," an ancient and important staple for Hawaiians. Poi is made in traditional underground ovens and pounded into a paste, adding water for consistency and served. See more from Hawaii Seed. They are a great promoter of non-GMO farmed taro throughout the islands. http://www.hawaiiseed.org/local-issues/taro/ rok-potatoes rok-roots
Ginormous Grapes!
Ginormous Grapes! Ginormous grapes! Since it is grape harvest season... These Shine Muscat grapes are being grown by Strawberry Fields in Tsukuba, Japan. Since 2005, they solubilize Be-1 Pellets in water and feed monthly during growing season. If you think these grapes are big, wait until we post their strawberry pics next summer. Thank you Endo-san for the pics. www.strawberry-fields-jp.com rok-grapes

Buckwheat Farm
Buckwheat Farm Buckwheat on right half of field is fed Be-1 Pellets, showing stronger stocks, growing a bit taller and fuller foliage with deeper shade of green. The real test will be in the taste of the buckwheat "Soba" noodles. Amino acids are chelates, binding to nutrients and making them plant absorbable and strengthening plants' natural defenses. Chitins in crab and shrimp shells in Be-1 also facilitate increasing microbes, while suppressing harmful nematodes.
Red Peppers from Aomori, Japan
Red Peppers from Aomori, Japan Aomori is the northernmost prefecture on the main island of Nihonshu. Among their agricultural products are peppers and these beauties were just sent to our Japan office by an commercial organic pepper farm that has been successfully using our amino acids concentrate for years. These peppers taste as good as they look, and much better than the numbing taste of peppers fed with conventional salt-based fertilizers. The liquid concentrate uses the same amino acids that go into the Be-1 Pellets. The only difference between the pellets and liquid concentrate is there is no NPK nutrient ratio given to the pure amino acid liquids because there is no bat guano, shrimp and crab shell, etc. as found in the pellets. The dilution rate is so high, so what would usually be a roughly 4% nitrogen value becomes relatively insignificant after dilution. The only function of the amino acids is to increase beneficial microbes in the soil. The dilution rate they used was 3,000:1 and from seed to several weeks before harvest, their soil microbes were fed 5 times this season, so once per month. The pure amino acids liquid concentrate may be best suited for commercial agricultural applications, including seed coatings and cover crops, as well as hydroponics. In such cases, farmers want the benefits of our amino acids, but want to use other organic nutrient products. rok-peppers
Rob-Half runner-Beans
Rob-Half runner-Beans Rob in the Mid-Atlantic sent us this close up picture of his fourth batch of beans this season. Fantastic color on the beans! He planted two 15' rows, one with Be-1 and the other with his usual conventional fertilizer. The Be-1 row produced 2/3 more than the other with his usual conventional non-organic fertilizer. He also says that with Be-1, they have grown and grilled more squash and zucchini than ever before. Most important, how was the taste? Good going, Rob! rok-beans

Squash-zucchini-Rob Squash and zucchini are "producing like crazy" with Be-1. Thanks for the pic, Rob Moore in NC. How about those beans?! Just top dressing the pellets and once per month, right? rok-cucumber
