Pellets Amendment

     Be-1 Pellets enhanced with Amino Acids ["hydrolyzed proteins" in California]

・ Be-1 Pellets are sustainably-harvested, 100% Natural Organic. 

・ Wild-sourced and fortified with a proprietary blend of Amino Acids, Sesame Meal, Rice Bran, Bat Guano, Palm Ash, Peanut Meal, Shrimp Shell

・ OMRI-listed and California Dept. of Ag Certified Organic Input

・ Specifically formulated to promote organic plant growth, Be-1 is a premium all-purpose choice for most gardening applications including orchids, flowers, edible fruits and vegetables, shrubs, trees and many other plants.

・ Easy to use, pellets facilitate aeration while helping condition soils and retaining moisture for exceptional fertility and vigorous growth.

・ Strengthen plants' natural defenses against disease and may aide in reducing or even eliminating need for some herbicides and pesticides

・ Minimal odor, so great for indoor and outdoor use



Customers often ask why we included the ingredients in the Be-1 Pellets.  In full disclosure, here are the diverse organic ingredients and the reasons we include all of them:

Amino Acids - technological advances in understanding has helped us to identify these benefits. 

1) Increase biology in soil  

2) Act as chelate agents for nutrients that affect/enhance a host of natural plant benefits

3) Facilitate photosynthesis

4) Increase plants natural defenses

Bat Guano
10% Nitrogen, 7% Phosphorus and 2% Potassium, +many trace minerals

From the remote location of our bat cave in Asia, unique nutrients in our bat guano provides spectacular, sustained foliar growth, building root mass and blooms, while encouraging microbial diversity in soil.

Crab and Shrimp Shell
Up to 25% Calcium % total Nitrogen, 3% Phosphorus, and 0.5% Potassium, +many trace minerals (Magnesium, Boron, etc).

A byproduct of the seafood industry, shells are often used as a soil additive. Shells are kiln dried and ground up into meal. A protein in shells called "chitin" is food for microorganisms. Chitin is not only a slow-release nitrogen to fuel chitin eating microbes, but also encourages defense mechanisms in plants and helps control pH.  Once shells are gone, microbes turn to feasting on nematodes, which also contain high levels of chitin; therefore suppressing pest nematode activity. Nematode-limiting effect develops after 4 to 8 months—sooner in warm soils with high Nitrogen. General usage is anywhere plants grow, and for accelerating compost piles.

Calcium, an essential part of plant cell wall structure, provides for transport and retention of other elements as well as strength in the plant.

Palm Ash
1% to 3% Phosphate, 25-35% Potassium, Magnesium 3%
High Potassium helps raise pH of Be-1 to a neutral 6.8 - 7.2%.
Magnesium is part of the chlorophyll in all green plants and essential for photosynthesis. It also helps activate many plant enzymes needed for growth.

Peanut Meal
8% Nitrogen, 1% Phosphorus and 2% Potassium
Good quality, slow-release nitrogen.
Slow-release and helps to raise nitrogen in Be-1 and balance carbon to nitrogen ratio.

Rice Bran
10% Fiber, 40% Carbohydrates, 20% Lipids and 10% Protein/Amino Acids
Rice bran is great at absorbing moisture, while maintaining a high carbon to nitrogen ratio.

Sesame Meal
6% Nitrogen, 4% Phosphorus and 2% Potassium
Sesame is one of the world's oldest cultivated plants.  Beyond the usual NPK, it contains 43% Proteins (amino acids), 9% oils, 23% Carbohydrates, and 4% Trace Minerals (calcium, magnesium, copper, vitamin B1, zinc and dietary fiber)

30+ years of research and development

30+ years of research and development by two of the world's leading amino acids research labs based in Japan, went into developing the 100% natural organic Be-1 Organics Pellets - the ultimate bio-stimulant for building soils and as a compost starter.

Be-1's proprietary blend of amino acids is formulated specifically for feeding and exponentially increasing beneficial microbes (bacteria, protozoa and mycorrhiza fungi), already in the soil or in complementary microbial products, and that promote plant nutrient intake, resulting in soil conditioning that is intensified naturally and with the added benefit of a non-salt based NPK of 3-6-5.

Commercial Ag
Every growing season, plants take up nutrients in the soil that need to be replenished. Think, not just NPK, but the microbes that help convert nutrients into forms that are usable by plants.

Conventional salt-based fertilizers interrupt the symbiotic relationship between microbes and nutrients. Therefore, do not forget to feed your soil and use Be-1 to maintain soil health organically.

・ Volume discounts available
・ Feed and exponentially increase natural and beneficial soil microbes already in the soil that have been killed by years of feeding conventional salt-based (sodium-nitrate) fertilizers. Be-1 has not sodium-nitrates.
・ Enhance natural plant defenses to reduce the need for conventional pesticides and herbicides, while enhancing natural flavor
・ 1/3 of Be-1's nitrogen is water-soluble and immediately available to plants. The other 2/3 is slow-release, meaning feeding less often.
