Frequently Asked Questions
I need to apply GroPal Balance each year?
is beneficial to put out at least 16 ounces of GroPal Balance A each
year to help maintain soil balance for organic soils, but 32 ounces
is needed for non-organic farms. Chemical fertilizers,
herbicides, pesticides, etc. are detrimental to the soil, but GroPal
Balance can help to restore balance to the soil.
I need to apply GroPal Balance after every cutting of hay?
is up to you. If you want to really boost yields, an
additional 16 to 32 ounces of GPB-A may be applied immediately after
each cutting. Perhaps a better option is to wait 7 to 10 days after each
cutting and apply two quarts of GroPal Balance F foliar.
have almost no top soil. Will GroPal Balance help?
the poorest soils contain good amounts of calcium, phosphorus and
potassium, though they may not be available to the plant. When all
top soil is gone, it is best to apply 1 to 2 quarts of GroPal
Balance A per acre to help initiate soil building. The bacterial
action is what is needed to highly structure the soil and initiate
forms of nitrogen are the most compatible with GroPal Balance?
and 32% are the two forms of nitrogen that may be mixed with GroPal Balance.
Pour your GroPal Balance into the tank first, add any water that is
needed, then add in the nitrogen.
microbes does GroPal Balance have?
Balance has a predominance of fungi, more than 70 aerobic bacillus
species, mycorrhizal fungi, plus other beneficial microbes. However, GroPal Balance isn't a
biological. It is a bio-stimulant. It is a wonderful
food source that gets our great biological package established in
Q: My ground is
dry. Can I still apply GroPal Balance?
the ground is dry, it is best to try to apply GroPal Balance just
before a rain. Use at least a 20 gal./acre tank mix (more is better)
to supply enough water to carry GroPal Balance down out of direct
way, even if you don't get the expected rain, the microbes in GroPal
Balance will not be harmed as you wait for some rain to activate it.
Another option is to disk in your GroPal Balance. Disking
1 to 2 inches deep is optimal, but up to 4" is ok.
containers of GroPal Balance seem to be bloating. What should I do?
A: GroPal Balance is alive with beneficial bacteria and fungi.
Because of this, and especially in warmer storage conditions, it is
best to loosen the lid and allow gas to vent. Failure to do
so might result in the pressurization and rupturing of the
quickly will GroPal Balance begin working?
Balance needs two things to activate it. It needs 1.1" or more of
moisture and as little as 1/20th of an inch of rain to carry it down into the soil.
The moisture gives the bacteria what they
need to proliferate.
GroPal Balance also needs a soil temperature of 40 to 45
degrees F for proper activation. Once activated, it goes to work immediately to improve
soil tilth and increase the soil's ability to hold moisture. Within
as little as a month you might notice that rain soaks in better,
and within a few months the results can be

summer, fall or winter (as long as the soil is permiable). Get it on as soon as possible so that it can get
started in transforming your soil. Our Application
Guideline sheet will
tell you more.
Q: Once I apply
a herbicide, pesticide, fungicide or
insecticide, how long should I wait before I can make an application
of GroPal Balance?
A: Three days, unless it has
rained after the chemical application, in which case it is best to wait at least 2
days. If you put on a heavy application of NPK, lime or
other chemical fertilizer, it is best to wait a full two weeks before applying
are rock-like crystals in the bottom of the jug. What should I do?
A: It is not unusual to find crystals in the bottom of the jug.
GroPal Balance is a super concentrated liquid, and over time or if
it is exposed to cold temperatures, some mineral (mostly magnesium
chloride and potassium chloride) will fall out of solution and
solidify as crystals.
If this happens, you can usually just dump
them right in the spray tank and they will re-dissolve back into
solution. Another option is to just throw them out on the field,
yard or garden.
if GroPal Balance doesn't work?
A: If GroPal
Balance doesn't seem to work, please use the following to
troubleshoot the problem:
the person assigned to apply/use the product do so? We
had one instance of the owner assigning an employee the job of
applying our product. The
owner complained our product didn't work! We found the product still
sitting in the storage shed. It
had not been applied by the employee.
they apply the product correctly? If our
application guidelines are
followed, it all but insures that GroPal Balance will work
any other products added after applying GPB? Our
say that most all other products should not be added in to the same
tank mix with GroPal Balance. They will reduce its effectiveness. If
approved products are being mixed into the tank, please be sure to
follow the procedure for doing so as outlined in the
you given GroPal Balance A adequate time to work? As
mentioned above, GroPal Balance works by transforming the soil. This
is a work that takes some time before results become evident. The
good news is, GPB has the potential to continue improving the soil
year by year, so that better and better results are seen. A farmer
in Oregon has used Soil Balance for 8 years. His organic matter was
at 0.4%, but it has increased by 0.5% each year, so that after 8
years it has reached 4.7%! Give GPB some time, and you will
LOVE the results!
GroPal Balance properly stored? It
should not be stored in the sun or in temperatures above 100
degrees, or in freezing temperatures. Freezing temperatures will not
hurt our bacteria, but they will cause minerals to fall out of
product(s) have you used for weed and/or insect control previously? We
had a grower with so much carry-over from the chemical he used
previously that it appeared no GroPal Balance had been applied. He
had to apply extra Soil Balance to overcome the carry-over of
chemicals, but after doing so he had an excellent harvest
with yield exceeding any previous years.
