GroPal Balance is a highly concentrated organic fertilizer that can accomplish all of the above.

 


How GroPal Balance Works

Instead of feeding the plant directly with NPK, we supply a host of microorganisms to convert tied up nutrients in the soil into available plant food.

  1. The best way to get good yields and at the same time build the soil is to fully utilize microorganisms. Fertilizing with NPK bypasses these helpful microbes.
  2. We encourage the plant to manufacture large amounts of sugar (carbon) and send it to the soil through its roots to colonize and feed microorganisms.
  3. These microorganisms convert unavailable nutrients into available plant food.
  4. The sugars secreted by the plant work like glue to bind soil particles together, creating air spaces and bringing structure to the soil, eliminating soil compaction and producing humus.
  5. As air flows down into the soil, nitrogen fixing bacteria convert the N into available plant food.
  6. Bacteria break down the chemicals and toxins that inhibit beneficial microbes.
  7. Bacteria remediate salts that inhibit soil life, flushing them away from the root zone.
  8. The soil becomes an ideal growing environment as aerobic bacteria, fungi and beneficial nematodes displace anaerobic bacteria and harmful nematodes.


  • It only requires one application a year - you can choose not to fertilize after each cutting

3 Ways GroPal Balance Works


GroPal Balance is a unique product that helps with 3 vital functions for the rapid building of rich top soil:


  1. Provides a host of nutrients needed by the plant, including the many trace mineral found in ocean water
  2. Provides 70+ beneficial bacteria plus mycorrhizal fungi to help make nutrients available to the plant
  3. Helps to energize the plant to sequester sugars (carbon) to feed the micro-organisms in the soil, which in turn make nutrients available to the plant

An exceptional article that explains this concept in detail

Dr. Christine Jones has written an exceptional article which was published in the March, 2015 issue of AcresUSA. This article does a great job of explaining how GroPal Balance is able to accomplish all it does. Click here to read her article.

In her interview, Dr. Christine Jones explains the best way to increase the amount of carbon (sugars) the plant exudes through the roots into the soil, and how this is a wonderful way to increase the RFV and brix of the plant.



How GroPal Balance Facilitates Rapid Topsoil Formation


Dr. Jones says that the formation of topsoil can be breathtakingly rapid. She explains that the reason for this is that most of the ingredients for new topsoil come from the atmosphere, including carbon, hydrogen, oxygen and nitrogen. Plants utilize these to produce liquid carbon, which they then exude into the soil through their roots in order to feed soil microbes. It is this flow of liquid carbon (sugars) into the soil that is the primary means by which rich topsoil is formed.


GroPal Balance helps to improve the soil 
and the plants growing in it


  1. GroPal Balance provides a host of nutrients, including a rich supply of the trace minerals found in ocean water. These nutrients supply the soil with what it needs so that it can supply plants with the energy they need to reach their maximum potential.


  2. GroPal Balance provides 70+ beneficial bacteria plus fungi. These micro-organisms help to create balance in the soil.Balance is everything! The balance created causes the soil to possess a high energy level.
    When this energy is made available to plants, it energizes them to sequester sugars to feed the micro-organisms in the soil.


  3. As the micro-organisms are nurtured and fed by the plant, they in turn make nutrients and energy available to the plant. This enables the plant to sequester even more sugars into the soil. This relationship between microbes and plant result in plants being able to attain their optimum potential.


The Best Way to Form Topsoil


Many scientists have confused themselves — and the general public — by assuming soil carbon sequestration and the making of topsoil occurs as a result of the decomposition of organic matter such as crop residues.


In stark contrast, Dr. Jones points out that most of the elements needed to create topsoil are found in the atmosphere and that the creation of new soil centers around carbon. Compost may help, but it is simply not the best way to create topsoil.


A plant can acquire between 85 to 90 percent of the building materials it needs from the air to create liquid carbon. The rest of the nutrients are provided from the soil. Soil microbes use this liquid carbon as an energy source to help them convert tied up nutrients into available plant food. In the process, the sugars emitted by the roots act as a glue to create complex soil structure, which includes stable forms of carbon and humus.


New topsoil is rapidly created in this environment. Once GroPal Balance is activated with at least 1.1” of moisture and a soil temperature above 45 degrees, almost immediately plants begin to secrete liquid carbon into the soil, and it is only a matter of weeks before new soil begins to form.


This is superior to results seen by using a bio stimulant, including natural plant or seaweed extracts. GroPal Balance contains every micro and macro nutrient needed by the plant, plus fungi and over 70 species of bacteria that help the soil to convert nutrients tied up in the soil into plant food.


Benefits of Sequestering Carbon into the Soil


Carbon is needed for soil structuring and water holding. As liquid carbon streams into the aggregates via the roots or fungal linkages, it enables the production of glues and gums that hold soil particles together.


Establishing a good soil structure enables nitrogen-fixing bacteria to function. You will rarely see a nitrogen deficient plant in a healthy natural ecosystem. Ammonia that is fixed from the air is rapidly converted into an amino acid or incorporated into a humic polymer. These organic forms of nitrogen cannot be leached or volatilized.


With rapid carbon sequestering, the growth rate of plants can quickly increase, with as much as a 25% to 30% increase in yields the first year. That is the power of properly functioning soil.


Why it is Best to Immediately 
Stop Using Chemical Fertilizers
Once GroPal Balance is Applied


As Dr. Jones pointed out, if plants can obtain nitrogen and phosphorus easily, they will stop pumping carbon into the soil to support their microbial partners. This interruption of the carbon flow to the soil reduces aggregation and the forming of new topsoil.


Some individuals may want to apply a little nitrogen when a grain plant like corn or wheat is fruiting to increase protein in the grain. The problem is, the test for protein is actually a measurement of nitrogen, not a true test of protein. So whereas the protein might actually be higher in a crop grown without supplemental nitrogen, crops fertilized with nitrogen at fruitation are likely to test higher for protein. It is far better to foliar with 0.4 to 0.5 gallons/acre of GroPal just before fruitation to raise the Brix.


As Dr. Jones stated, including some clovers or peas with your wheat or some vetch with your corn is another way of supplying the soil with extra organic nitrogen. As is mentioned in her article, in biologically active soils, Dr. Jones hasn’t seen a response to synthetic nitrogen or phosphorus fertilizers. Dr. Jones found the use of NPK to be counterproductive.


Remember that a soil test can only tell you what is available to plants by passive uptake of inorganic nutrients, like those provided by NPK fertilizers. The other 97 percent of minerals, those made available by microbes, are not inorganic minerals and will simply not be visible on a standard soil test.


By nurturing the aerobic microbes in the soil, we can increase the availability of a huge variety of minerals and trace elements — most of which are not contained in fertilizers.


Maintaining Soil Aggregates


Keep the soil covered and don’t till it

Tilling the soil or allowing soil to remain bare for a number of months disrupts soil microbial life, as well as mycorrhizal fungi. Plant a cover crop and use companion crops with cash crops.


Remember, plants colonized by mycorrhizal fungi can grow much more robustly even though they’re giving away as much as half of the sugars that they make in photosynthesis through their roots. They photosynthesize faster, producing more sugars, which can in turn be shared with the soil.


In regions with a hot, dry summer, evaporation is enemy number one. Bare soil will be significantly hotter and lose more moisture than covered soil. Aggregates will break down unless the soil is alive. Aggregation is absolutely vital for moisture infiltration and retention.


Avoid or minimize chemical applications

This includes synthetic fertilizers, fungicides, insecticides and herbicides. It is a no-brainer that something designed to kill things is going to do just that.


Chemical applications can inhibit the soil fungi that are essential to crop nutrition and soil building. When soil fungi are kept from functioning properly, plants can no longer use them to obtain the trace elements they need to fight fungal diseases.


Overcoming weeds

When we spray for weeds it creates bare ground and the weed seed that’s there means the weeds simply come back.


Some weeds have deep roots that help to bring up nutrients. Leaving them can mean that better quality plants will eventually be able to grow in the improved soil and replace the weeds. A little patience may be needed while soils improve.


For dry regions, perennial grasses have incredibly deep root systems and form mycorrhizal associations that help them survive during dry periods. They will soon create their own microclimate to help them overcome a lack of water and thrive, displacing weeds.


A diversity of plants actually improves nutrient acquisition and water retention, and helps to fill in gaps in the soil. Multi-species pasture cropping can help to displace unwanted weeds. Rotational grazing can help, too. For cash crops, multi-species cover crops and companion crops can help with weed control and soil improvement, as soils move toward fungal dominance.
