BEI Hawaii traces its beginning to 1890, when a small Honolulu company began importing albatross guano from the Pacific’s remote Laysan Island. As sugar and pineapple grew into major agricultural industries in Hawaii, the company expanded its line of products to include commercial fertilizers and crop protection products.
In 1927, the company, then known as Pacific Guano and Fertilizer Company, opened a branch on the island of Hawaii, following later with additional facilities on Maui and Kauai. The company began blending its own fertilizers on all major islands. Its Laboratory Services Division in Papaikou on the island of Hawaii became an important resource for soil and plant tissue analysis, paving the way for custom blended fertilizers. By the 1930’s, Hawaii became the world’s most efficient grower of sugarcane and pineapple. Our fertilizer and specialty chemical brand, Gaviota, became synonymous with these crops.
Building on that expertise, the company, under several name changes, took on the challenges of Hawaii’s growing diversified agricultural business. Known as Brewer Chemical, and later as Brewer Environmental Industries, the company became the primary manufacturer of fertilizers for Hawaii’s major plantation crops – sugar, pineapple and macadamia nuts. Today, seed corn is the dominant agricultural crop and we continue to be a principal supplier for their specific crop needs.
The world also knows Hawaii as a world class travel destination. BEI Hawaii successfully became the primary supplier of fertilizers, chemicals and sand to Hawaii’s golf course and landscape markets. BEI Hawaii pioneered the use of high grade silica sands for golf courses and continues to provide USGA sand and custom blended rootzone mixes for new golf course construction, renovations and ongoing maintenance requirements.

“It is estimated that one-sixth of the world’s soils have already been degraded by water and wind erosion. Land-use change is a direct and immediate cause of erosion: most changes of land use unfortunately increase the risk of erosion.”
Erosion control is a growing problem.
Today’s erosion control industry evolved out of the simple idea that mitigating erosion and sedimentation is mostly a physical/mechanical problem. That is, if you can stop rain or wind from detaching dirt and carrying it downstream to deposit somewhere unintended, you have achieved erosion control. This kind of thinking has generated a myriad of products and solutions that all have one thing in common… they are designed to hold soil in place and they are designed to last… Granted, this is a good thing in some applications where natural vegetation is not an option, but in the vast majority of land reclamation applications, the goal is to get the land back to a natural state at some point.
In 2010, a soil scientist and an engineer from the industry decided to take a different point of view… What if erosion control really is a Growing Problem? That is… what if you could boost the ecosystem and rapidly grow vegetation on the site before significant erosion occurred? There would be no need for durable, persistent (and expensive) erosion control solutions. You could get all the erosion control benefits of natural vegetation along with the aesthetic value of a natural looking landscape. Countless agronomic studies over the last 30 years have cited sustained vegetation as the best long term erosion control solution. But barren soil (typical site subsoil) alone does not support good vegetation growth. Plants need a full topsoil ecosystem to flourish. So how do you get from barren subsoil to vegetated topsoil quickly and economically?
The answer is in soil science and natural soil building cycle. Topsoil in the environment builds naturally at a rate controlled by a number of well-studied variables in the ecosystem. Under normal conditions, topsoil can take from a year to hundreds of years to develop naturally. Under the right conditions, you can accelerate the rate of topsoil development dramatically by tweaking the right variables. This concept is the basis for our company and our products.
Organic Earth Industries, Inc. formed in 2012 with the goal of applying soil science and agronomic methods to the problem of erosion control. Part of the solution is in optimizing the soil chemistry to provide the right levels of mineral macronutrients. Part of the solution is in designing the optimal organic growth medium and plant meals to drive germination. Part of the solution is in creating the optimal biological culture including beneficial bacteria and fungi to jumpstart root growth and the decomposition of organic material into micronutrients. Part of the solution is in designing the matrix of mulching fibers and bonding agents to provide the temporary erosion, temperature, and moisture control. The final part of the solution is in designing the system of all of these components to work together and decompose at appropriate rates to provide plant available micronutrients as they are needed. That’s it.
Our research and field applications experience over the last 3 years has led us to develop of a line of hydraulically applied HGM2 (hydraulic growth medium + erosion control mulch) products for a myriad of different applications from steep slope work in land reclamation projects to residential lawn work in new housing construction.
We’re proud of our products and our approach. Our best advertisement is to put these products on the dirt and see for yourself.
