Richard: I put the GroPal out here last March, GroPal
Balance, and I didn't, I really couldn't tell any difference all
through the spring and summer. And until about 3 months ago, and I
could, I could tell a difference, because the grass, it got
looking a lot worse and a lot thinner than this grass.

that got us kind of excited, because we could see a real
difference in it. And this had nothing; and this, all it had was
the GroPal Balance. So we were pretty impressed by it doing
late in the year whenever the grass is usually going back, this
was still coming.
Paul: Ok. So you see more growth, you see...is it any
Richard: A lot thicker, it's thicker, it was thicker, it
was like you put cows in, when I first put them in here, it was
like you put cows on fresh grass and they tromp it down because
it's up, that's the way that was. The other was not that way.
they just stayed back here and ate on this, instead of coming on
up. There's the water trough all the way at the other end of the
pasture; but every time I come they were back here laying up under
those cedar trees.
Paul: So they would come over here and feed and then go
over there and drink?
Richard: Right. I guess they went to drink. I didn't
catch them over there. They stayed back here until way later.
like I say, we couldn't tell it all spring and summer. And I was
real disappointed until about 3 months ago; you could really
start, it really started, you could tell a difference.
the other grass went to going back, Pensacola Bahia Grass,
northeast Florida. That's normal, in July it started going back.
But this went to coming on; the rest went back, but this went to
Paul: So right around August we started really seeing
this thicken up and grow more, and the cows preferred it and ate
it down. So it was from March till August, so about 5 months and
then this really started coming on and you really started seeing a
Richard: And it was visible, it was really visible.
And at that time I got my brother to come and look at it just to
make sure I wasn't seeing things, and he was impressed.
put the GroPal on last March...
Paul: You put the GroPal Balance...comes almost up to his
elbow, well, not up to the elbow, but yea.
Richard: Well, when you hold it up...it's already laid
Paul: Yea, ok.
Richard: I put the GroPal Balance on it, um, soil
conditioner, and all through the summer we couldn't tell anything
until about August when the rest of the grass was going back, its
Pensacola Bahia, northeast Florida, we come out here and looked,
and we could visibly see where we had quit putting it out on the
I'll show you some over there we didn't put it on, and it's not
near the grass there. Plus this doesn't have the broomsedge here,
which tells us it doesn't need lime. Plus where there were some
spots of dog fennel weed, there's not near the dog fennel here as
there is on what we didn't put the GroPal on.
This is the pasture where we didn't put the GroPal Balance, and
you can see the difference; the other was not like this (the grass
from the GroPal Balance side).
there's a lot more dead here, plus there's a lot more weeds. And
you can see the little dog fennels that's growing back after it
was mowed in July. And that over there was choked out, we believe.
the grass was so much thicker.
Paul: Right. You want to pull a little over here, too,
and we'll put it side by side then.
Wow! That's quite the difference. Plus the cows were feeding over
there and they weren't feeding over here.
Richard: Right. This is the grass that was treated with
the GroPal Balance, and this was not. And that's the difference,
with Pensacola Bahia Grass.
Paul: Wow. That's quite a difference in root structure,
Richard: It has a lot better mycorrhizal in it and
everything. It's sweet.
Paul: Wow. And this is typical for where we put the
GroPal Balance and where we didn't put it?
Paul: And this is Richard Fish, in northeast Florida.
