GroPal Balance A
GroPal Balance A (GPB-A) is for soil applications only. Its
strength lies in its ability to transform microbial life in the
soil, flocculate and condition the soil, and help to stimulate the
plant to sequester liquid carbon (sugars) into the soil. GPB-C is
for foliar applications. For best results, apply a full 40 oz.
GPB-A before considering GPB-C.
GPB-A needs a small amount of rain or irrigation water to get it
into the soil to start working. If the soil doesn’t have good
moisture, an additional inch or more of moisture is needed to
tank mix of at least 20 gallons per acre is best. This helps to
move it down out of the sun’s reach, whether sprayed on heavy
foliage or the bare ground. However, a tank mix of 10 gallons per
acre or less or 3 gal./acre using a plane is also ok if within a
couple of days GPB has some moisture to carry it into the soil.
As soon as your product arrives, please
crack open the lid to allow it to vent,
thereby preventing a build-up of pressure.
Do not store in direct sunlight.
GroPal Balance A may be
applied Spring, Summer, Fall or Winter
An early or late spring application can help improve that
year’s crop. Apply ASAP to get it working.
A summer application can raise nutrients in the plant and can
really get things rolling in the soil. However, a measureable
increase in yields might not be apparent till late that year
or even until the next spring.
A fall application will allow GroPal Balance to improve the
soil throughout the fall and early spring.
A winter application may be more convenient for some farmers,
and works well. The important thing is that the soil is
permeable so that moisture that comes can take it on into the
How much GroPal Balance
can safely be applied
You needn’t be concerned about harming your soil by applying too
much GroPal Balance. Just make sure it is thinned down enough not
to burn the leaves. To avoid burning the plant, don’t apply more
than half a gallon per 20 gal./acre tank mix, unless after
applying it GPB is washed off of leaves.
Application Rate Guidelines
($9.99 to $39.96 per acre
when purchased by the bucket)
10 ounces per acre if no chemical applications (NPK,
herbicides, pesticides, insecticides, nematicides, etc.) have
been made in the past 2 or 3 years. For reference only, A
10 oz. app. has increased yields by 20% to 30%.
15 ounces per acre if light chemical applications have been
made in the past number of years.
If maximum impact is desired, apply up to 40 ounces per acre.
For reference only, this has increased yields by
up to 75%.
For soils that have had heavy chemical applications,
apply a 2nd and even a 3rd ten ounce application 3 to 4 weeks
apart, after a heavy initial GPB-A application.
Working with herbicide applications
- Wait 7 to 10 days after applying a pre-emergent fertilizer,
then apply GroPal Balance A
- Wait 3 to 4 days after spraying with a knock-down herbicide,
then apply 10 ounces of GPB-A
For increased yields on hay fields
The best approach is to apply as much GPB-A at the beginning
of the season as possible, up to 40 oz./acre. This gives the
best return on investment.
Since our goal is to improve the soil, it is best to get on
all your GPB-A to super-charge the process, rather than
applying more after each application.
The exception is if herbicide applications will be made. If
that is the case, it is best to apply more to begin with, then
a 10 oz. application 3 or 4 days after each herbicide
When is the best time to apply GroPal Balance A?
For row crops, going in-the-row, on-the-seed or side-dressing
at planting with 10 to 20 oz./acre is a highly effective
application, and is more efficient than a broadcast
For everything other than row crops, use a broadcast or
irrigation application. You will want to get it on as soon as
possible, whether spring, summer, fall or winter, so it can
get a jump start on it's work of optimizing the soil.
rotational grazing, hay fields, row crops and higher dollar crops
one or more GPB-C foliar applications may be helpful
($16.65 to $25 per acre when purchased by the bucket)
One to 1.5 quarts per
acre per application
GPB-C foliar is only recommended when you have accomplished
all that you can with GroPal Balance A (see above), but desire
even greater results. Not only can one or more applications of
GroPal Balance C increase yields, but GPB-C may also help to
increase protein, test weights and relative feed value.
These foliar applications may be helpful to hay farmers who
want greater yields without the use of chemical fertilizers,
or by those who grow row crops, fruits or vegetables.
Apply a foliar application of 1 to 1.5 quarts per acre with a
10 gal./acre or more tank mix. It is best applied at the
following times, depending on the crop:
1. Two to four weeks post-emergence
2. During flowering
3. At the beginning stages of fruiting
The best time for making foliar applications is when the
temperature is below 80 to 85 degrees. Above that temperature

Why chemical fertilizers hinder the work of GroPal Balance
While it is true that a farmer who applies NPK will no doubt reap
benefits from a GroPal Balance application, the greatest soil
building occurs when nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium and calcium
are not applied.
Every time NPK is applied, the plant is provided with a ready
source of nutrients, making it unnecessary for the plant to
sequester sugars through its roots to cultivate the biological in
the soil. Soil life grows weaker, organic matter decreases and
soil structure is lost.
Herbicides and GroPal Balance
Herbicides do damage to soil life and balance. However, you can
easily overcome this damage so that you still get wonderful
As mentioned above, if you are applying a pre-emergent herbicide,
it is best to wait 7 to 10 days after the application, then apply
GroPal Balance A. This may be banded over the row at a rate of 10
to 20 oz./acre or broadcast at 10 to 40 oz./acre.
Why wait 7 to 10 days? GroPal Balance will quickly break down the
herbicide, so we want to give the herbicide the time it needs to

help restore soil balance.
extra nitrogen is needed
Some farmers have noted a lack of nitrogen after applying GroPal
Balance. If this is the case, a nitrogen application may be
needed, especially the first year when using GroPal Balance. 28%
or 32% are compatible with GPB. If another grade of nitrogen is
applied, it is best to follow it up a few weeks later with a 5 to
10 oz. application of GPB-A to help restore balance to the soil.
Many farmers want to see something work on a small scale before
they will be ready to use it on a large scale. So why not pick out
an area and give GroPal Balance A a try? Once you apply the GroPal
Balance, make every effort not to apply anything else in the test
area. While you will likely see some results that growing season,
look for even greater results the next growing season.

best results, apply GroPal Balance in the fall right after
planting. Spring applications will be less effective.
For best results, apply GroPal Balance before, at or shortly after
planting (for sure before 3rd leaf).
For best results, apply GroPal Balance before, at or right after
planting (for sure before 5 leaf). In furrow or side-dressed
is more efficient than a broadcast application.
When using GroPal balance,
if you choose to apply nitrogen, we recommend 28% or 32%, as
these are more compatible with GPB. Once GPB has had a few
months to work, it will flocculate the soil. Then our nitrogen
fixing bacteria will convert nitrogen in the air into urea,
and other microbes will make this available to the plant. Once
this takes place, there should be no shortage of nitrogen. To

For those who choose to apply nitrogen, for best results you
should only use 28% or 32%. To apply your nitrogen with GroPal
balance, Put GroPal Balance in the tank first, add whatever
amount of water you are planning for the tank mix, then add
the nitrogen. Since the nitrogen will be highly available, you
may be able to reduce your nitrogen rate by 50%.
Alfalfa and grass hay
For best results, apply GroPal Balance before or at green-up,
applying 20 to 40 oz./acre. Once 40 ounces has
been applied, some farmers may choose to boost yields even
more with one or two applications of a quart of GPB-C as a
foliar application 7 to 10 days after each cutting.
Instructions for applying to very dry ground
When the ground is super dry, it is best to try to apply GPB-A
just before a rain. Use at least a 20 gal./acre tank mix (more is
better) to supply enough water to carry GroPal Balance A into the
ground or far enough down into the foliage to get it out of direct
sunlight. That way, even if you don't get the expected rain,
GroPal Balance will not be harmed as you wait for some rain to
