Introducing a product that we use all the time to boost our beneficial soil insect counts; in our propagation units, in our worm bins and in our living soil beds and containers. Not only will it boost your insect populations, but it will offer food for your soil, protection for your plants and improvement of fungal activity in your soil food web.



Ingredients:

100% Organic, Non-GMO Ingredients, Sprouted Corn (Blue or Yellow), Sprouted Lentils, Sprouted Barley, Wheat Bran, Oatmeal




Intended Uses

Great for Beneficial Soil Insects:
This product is a blend of all organic seeds, grains and oats specially formulated to provide complete nutrition to your beneficial insects, encourage reproduction and promote expansion and exploration within your containers, greenhouse or grow area.

Rove beetles and Hypoapsis miles are ferocious eaters and thrive in conditions where there is ample food supply even when there is not an active soil pest issue that you are targeting.

 

Great As A Soil Amendment:

In addition to being great for your beneficial soil insects, it is generally great for your soil.

Our blend of sprouted barley, corn and lentil provide proteins and enzymes that promote vigorous plant growth.

Barley provides the enzymes phosphatase, chitinase, urease, and amylase which feed the microbes in your soil to improve nutrient uptake and cycling. These 4 enzymes provide high levels of chitinase which is a compound that improves plant immunity and imuno-responses to pathogens and diseases including powdery mildew.

The oats and wheat bran promote mycellial growth on and in your mulch layer as well which helps the soil food web cycle nutrients on the surface layer, which is why we recommend using it as a the last step in your top dress. This will expedite bio-availibility of nutrients to your plants.

 

Great In Your Worm Bin

You can add a dusting to a rate of 1.5cup per cubic foot of worm bin
space on top. We recommended reducing or eliminating your other worm food when you add Beneboost to avoid overfeeding.

Application Instructions

For all applications, we recommend pulverizing this blend to make it easily spreadable and quickly consumed by your beneficial organisms.

To apply as a top dress amendment simply sprinkle the mixture 1-2 tablespoons per square foot, across the top of your container and water it in. It is normal to see mycellium and fungal activity after a couple days.

When mixing into soil, apply at a rate of 1.5 cups per cubic foot of soil.

To use in an aerated compost tea, or sprouted seed tea, use 1 cup to 5 gallons of water, put in a strainer bag and aerate for 36 to 48 hours.

Storage

We recommend storing all dry amendments and nutrients in a dry, cool location away from direct sun.
