I need to apply MycorrPlus each year? A:It
is beneficial to put out at least 32 ounces of MycorrPlus-A
(formerly called GroPal Balance) each year to help transform the
soil. A 64 ounce application helps to accelerate the process.
I need to apply MycorrPlus after every cutting of hay?
is up to you. If you want to really boost yields, an
additional 32 ounces of MycorrPlus-A may be applied immediately after
each cutting. Another option is to
apply two quarts of MycorrPlus-F foliar. Wait
long enough after the cutting to have enough leaf to receive the
application, usually 7 to 14 days.
have almost no top soil. Will MycorrPlus help? A:Even
the poorest soils contain good amounts of calcium, phosphorus and
potassium, though they may not be available to the plant. Apply 1 to
2 quarts of MycorrPlus-A or O 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 MycorrPlus? A:28%
and 32% are the two forms of nitrogen that may be mixed with
Pour your MycorrPlus into the tank first, add any water that is
needed, then add in the nitrogen.
microbes does MycorrPlus have? A: MycorrPlus has
4 strains of mycorrhizal fungi, more than 70 aerobic bacillus
strains. However, MycorrPlus 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 MycorrPlus? A:When
the ground is dry, it is best to try to apply MycorrPlus just
before a rain. Use at least a 20 gal./acre tank mix to supply enough water to carry
MycorrPlus down out of direct
sunlight. If it might be a week or more before a rain, it is best to
apply a 40+ gallon tank mix per acre.
Another option is to disk in your MycorrPlus. Disking 1 to
2 inches deep is optimal.
containers of MycorrPlus seem to be bloating. What should I do?
A: MycorrPlus is alive with beneficial bacteria and mycorrhizal 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.
quickly will MycorrPlus begin working? A:MycorrPlus 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.
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
is the best time to apply MycorrPlus? A:Spring,
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. OurApplication
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 MycorrPlus? A: Three days, unless it has
rained after the chemical application, in which case it is best to
wait at least 2 days.
is it best used with anhydrous ammonia? A:
Anhydrous ammonia is especially hard on the soil. Wait 2 or more
weeks after putting on anhydrous before putting on 1 to 2 quarts of
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.
MycorrPlus 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 MycorrPlus doesn't work? A: If MycorrPlus 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?Ifour
followed, it all but insures that MycorrPlus will work
any other products added after applying MycorrPlus?Our
say that most all other products should not be added in to the same
tank mix with MycorrPlus. 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 inthe
you given MycorrPlus adequate time to work?As
mentioned above, MycorrPlus works by transforming the soil. This
is a work that takes some time before results become evident. The
good news is, MycorrPlus 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 MycorrPlus some time, and you will
LOVE the results!
MycorrPlus properly stored?It
should not be stored in the sun or in temperatures above 100
degrees, or in temperatures below 0. Freezing temperatures will not
hurt our bacteria, but they might 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 MycorrPlus had been applied.He
had to apply extra MycorrPlus to overcome the carry-over of
chemicals, but after doing so he had an excellentharvest
with yield exceeding any previous years.
