Elaine, grass hay and pasture in northern
We applied 40 ounces of GroPal Balance A the
first of June. The first of August I saw that
our hay had an additional 3" of growth. A friend
of mine took a look at our hayfield, and was
amazed. He wanted to know what we did, because,
with the hot, dry conditions we have had over
the past couple of months, other hay fields in
the area had shown little or no growth . In
fact, he said that they had turned brown and
dry. Not only is our hay field still green all
the way down to the root, but the grass is
healthier and stronger.
What we are seeing is that the pasture is
beginning to be thicker. A friend of ours that
has had the same amount of rain has run out of
grass and is feeding hay, while we have more
grass than we can actually use for the number of
cattle that we have.
Elaine, compaction is decreasing, southern GA,
One of the main reasons I wanted to try GroPal
Balance is because of the compaction problems we
are having with our soil. Paul assured me that
compaction would gradually disappear after using
GroPal Balance A, so we decided to try it on our
1,000 acres of pasture and grass hay.
Well, I have watched it work, and much more
quickly than I had expected. After just 3
weeks, where we applied GroPal Balance the soil
probe would go down about 1" , but not at all in
a control field. After just 2 months the soil
probe goes down 2.5" where we applied the GroPal
Balance A, but still won't even go into the soil
in the control field.
Right after a rain I can go down 4" with the
probe. The compaction is getting better. Before
the GroPal Balance we had a lot of runoff, but
not as much now. I believe this decrease in
compaction is one of the reasons the rain is
going in better, causing the grass to do better.
I am really excited about what the GroPal
Balance is doing for us.
My husband is a person who is not very easily
convinced, he is a show-me person. But now, even
though it has only been a little over 2 months
since we applied the GroPal Balance he can see
the difference himself, and he is becoming
Elaine, mid-February, cattle fertility
I believe the sea minerals in GroPal Balance
will increase fertility. We have Heifers. Last
year we had 5 sets of paternal twins, which is
unheard of. Last year our 208 cows bred 224
Our cows bred in a shorter period of time last
year, and this year 110 out of 159 were born in
the first 30 days of calving. The sea minerals
in GroPal Balance really make a difference in
Last spring we had 10 calves in the barn, but
this year just one. Over the winter our calves
haven't drawn down, but are very fit. Our cows
are the best looking they have ever been in
mid-February. They should be a 5 or 6 for
re-breading, and they are already a 6.
Elaine, mid-February, clover
The last few years our soil compaction has
gotten worse and worse, and our clover wasn't
doing anything. Today is February 1. We used
GroPal Balance in July, and by mid-February our clover
already 6" high. Last year by mid-March it was
only 5" tall. Our clover is back! Our cows have
plenty of clover and rye grass, so they aren't
It also seems that the GroPal Balance is
stimulating our grass seed to come up. When we
sowed in previous years the grass was spotty at
best. But this year where we have sown has
filled up the pasture. Even my husband is amazed
by this, and excited.
Elaine, mid-March, grasshoppers and fire ants
Last fall I saw fire ants moving down the cow
paths. Then this spring I saw the calves digging
at the fire ant mounds. Then I saw my cows doing
When I looked at the mounds there were no fire
ants in them. I called my Entomologist to ask
him about it. I told him that I had put out
GroPal Balance last summer. He then asked me if
it contained fungi, and I said yes. He then said
that fungi kill fire ants.
Also, I had grass hoppers last year, but none
this year. I don't know if the GroPal Balance
might have helped with that as well.
(Editor's note: Elaine's neighbors have
heard her tell about what GroPal Balance has
done for her and have seen her fields, and to
date 8 of them have purchased GroPal Balance).
Oat farmer in Missouri
A friend of mine used GroPal Balance A this
year. His sprayer doesn't have nozzles, but fans
the application out from one nozzle. The ground
tends to get a bit more right under the sprayer.
So I went to look at his oat field with him and
noticed that everywhere the tractor went there
was a ridge of oats that were taller and darker
green. This seems to demonstrate how a little
heavier application can give better results.
Clover in Harwood, TX
Leroy ordered another 5 buckets for this year.
He said that the GroPal Balance did really well
last year, and that his clover is so pretty and
tall this spring that he almost hates to turn
the cows loose on it.
Andrew Curtiss, Shalom Vegetables in Michigan My experience with the GroPal
Balance was excellent. I grow CSA and farm
market vegetables on a plot of land around 1
acre in size. It is land that had been used for
conventional agriculture for 30 years prior to
2015. On your recommendation I applied an
equivalent of 40 oz. of Gro-Pal Balance to the
acre in May of 2015.
To say I was impressed may be an understatement.
I planted 75 pounds of seed potatoes. My final
potato harvest was in the 1200 pound range.
For nearly 6 weeks my shell peas produced large
quantities of the sweetest peas I have grown. We
picked off of our bush snap beans for over 6
weeks. When I quit picking them they were still
flowering. By that time we had become completely
sick of picking beans.☺
Overall the flavor of our produce this last year
was exceptional. At the farmers market I was
told every week how excellent our produce was. I
have no doubt the Gro-Pal Balance was a major
What impressed me the most was the plants
ability to deal with stress. In mid-June we had
almost five inches of rain in two days. I
thought for sure I was going to loose half the
garden, as it was under water for almost 12
hours. The plants pushed through. What followed
was 21 days without rain. Never once in that
time did I see a wilted plant.
When it came time to tear the garden down, I was
blown away by the mycorrhizal fungi all over the
roots of our plants. I firmly believe that
symbiotic relationship between plant and root
was the key to our success in 2015. The root
structures were amazing. God's creation is truly
amazing! Thanks for an awesome product.

On my corn this year, the TDN was 87.95, protein
was 10.56 and test weights were 60.9. A few
stocks had 3 ears. The 3rd ear wasn't that
large, but it was filled out. The man who bought
the corn said, "Boy, this is heavy stuff".
Others in my area said their corn yields were
waty down, and they thought it was because of
too much rain. But my corn yields were up with
big ears. Some stalks were 12 feet tall.
On my pastures, I have 36 head on 19 acres. My
cattle are fatter than a pumpkin, nice and
round. My neighbor commented, "Boy, those cattle
are round, and they are square in the top; they
are in really good shape, nice and fat". My
grazing fields last a lot longer with GroPal
Balance. My thistles are gone; either the cows
ate them or the grass squeezed them out.
My apples are delicious, and people tell me that
my apple cider is extremely good. When they try
other organic ciders, they buy mine.

In 2015 I applied 10 gallons of fish per acre,
some biological and some enzymes. In 2016 I
didn't apply anything else but GroPal Balance. I
broadcast 16 ounces, then put another 16 ounces
in the row, on the seed. 2016 was a particularly
dry year. Although my corn and sunflowers were
under irrigation, I think the dry weather still
has a negative effect.
Although didn't apply anything in 2016 but the
GroPal Balance, my organic blue corn yielded 20%
more and my sunflowers yielded 25% more than in
2015. Besides this, they had better color and
vigor. They just weren't as vigorous before.
My dad even commented, "This stuff sure does
work"! Where I applied GroPal Balance on my
pasture, my Canadian Thistles turned yellow, and
my buffalo ate them right down to the soil. I
figure that the GroPal Balance made them more
GroPal Balance will probably be the only
fertilizer you will need for great pasture
Some may choose to further boost the process by
adding a natural product like fish or kelp.
However, though these are great products, you
will probably find yourself producingamazing
