University Trials 2017-08-17T13:30:23+00:00


IMPORTANT DISCLOSURE – The following university results were conducted using University Grade Field Soil. The only testing variable between treated and non treated results is Soil Balance Microbes.

It is important to note that Soil Balance Pro is designed for hydroponic mediums and its primary function is white roots, soil and plant health and terpene enhancement. Yield is not something we guarantee as all growers have various cultivation methodologies and techniques. 

Over 1.5 Million in funding was amassed for the following tests. Soil Balance Pro was in a liquid formulation for the following trials and contained only 27 microbe strains versus todays upgraded, higher concentrated version which contains 62 strains at a higher concentrate. It should be noted that the original 27 strains are still in the Soil Balance Pro powder formulation of today. All trials were completed by independent university analysis by PhD’s in various agronomic fields. Researchers include but are not limited to:

Dr. Richard Smiley – Cornell University
Dr. Donn Shilling – University of Florida
Dr. Krishna Mohan – University of Idaho
Dr. Candace Lowell – Central State University
Dr. Paul V. Nelson – North Carolina State University
Dr. Janell M Stevens Johnk – Texas A&M University
Dr. Robert Mikkelsen – North Carolina State University


Root Biomass – Tall Fescue Grass





Fresh Roots Biomass 7.80g 31.7g 34.2g

Treated – A 32%
Treated – B 34%

The following university data is unique and rare because while many companies claim yield enhancement, you will not find anything like what you are about to see on any of our competitors websites, anywhere in the world. Increased yields are a true byproduct of the life within the soil and vary with grower cultivation methodologies and skill levels. Kind Roots is committed to redefining cannabis flower quality and health for conventional and organic growers alike!

Strains in microbiology are as important as strains in Cannabis.  The 62 strains combined in Soil Balance Pro are new discoveries in the field of advanced microbiology. The ability to combine all of these strains in a stable form is a scientific breakthrough and sets us apart in the agriculture market. The combination of these newly discovered strains produce enzymes, acids, hormones and chemicals, unique to Soil Balance. The art of quality will be defined by the level of life you give you plants. The time for balance is now!






FOR TRIALS: Mix 3 to 5 grams with 2 gallons of water in a 5 gallon bucket. Using your hand or a wooden spoon, mix in a vortex for 10 minutes. Take the 2 gallons of mixed water and pour evenly at the stem base of 20 or less plants. You cannot over dose with Soil Balance Pro, so 3 to 5 grams can be used on one plant if desired. After the 2 gallons of water is evenly applied to the base of the plants, water those plants heavily until the entire pot is saturated with water. Do this every 7 days for 30 days.

Soil Balance contains 61,000,000,000,000 microbes in one gram of our powder. Most liquid and powder microbial competitors have an average of 500,000,000 microbes in one gram. This means it would take the average inoculant 122,000 grams of their product to equal what is in just one gram of Soil Balance.

We love compost tea and it is a beautiful practice in all aspects! However, making good, aerobic “humus” compost tea is an art and can be not only time consuming but difficult (especially if you are doing it right). The Soil Balance powder complements a good compost tea by creating a liquid solution that has many more microbes than the average compost tea or “liquid” microbial solution per gallon. Much more! This makes introducing more biodiversity to your soil easier, more efficient and gives you a more comprehensive community on your roots.

Speaking of roots brings up another good point. In microbiology, quality “strains” are important. Soil Balance contains 62 different strains of microbes which are all conducive to plant and soil health and they ALL live on roots (Rhizobacteria). Many of the compost tea’s or “liquid” microbial products of today contain strains from animal intestines and or plant leaves which die shortly after application in the harsh soil environment. Soil Balance contains only “root and soil microbes” which all live, grow, create and thrive on plant roots.

It is our hope that one day we can all become microbe farmers. It is important that our species learns to nurture, care and farm the soil in place of only the plant. The soil is more alive than we think and adding our living organisms which naturally co evolved with your plant in nature is the backbone for a healthy, nutrient dense, highly energetic system!

Lastly, the vast majority of current inoculants today rely solely on soil microbe strains discovered in the 1800’s such as Bacillus Subtilis discovered in 1872 and Trichoderma first described in 1794. However effective these strains may be, the advancement of natural microbial amendments has been in a holding pattern for many years due to the proven efficacy of organic and conventional fertilization. Soil Balance represents newly discovered strains that assist both conventional and organic growers and their fertilization protocols. Many competing microbial inoculants do not have the diversity to make quality fertilizers really shine.

We recommend a minimum of 5 applications through a 90 day growing cycle. If budgets allow, use Soil Balance once every week. If it is your first time using Soil Balance, we recommend applying once per week to see effects within 15 to 30 days. One application will show you dramatic results and the second will make you a true believer in soil life and biodiversity!

  1. After adding Soil Balance to water make sure to stir it in a vortex for at least 10 minutes so it absorbs completely into the water.
  2. As you make the vortex, add in some gratitude and positive energy for these little magic workers.
  3. Use water soluble humic acid to give our microbes some instant food but do not tank mix unless the pH is over 6.8 in the water solution.
  4. Apply close to the plant stem and water it in as deep as the roots go so that it makes contact.
  5. Have fun watching your plants reach their full genetic potential!

Soil Balance should not be tank mixed with any synthetic product. Wait 2 days after inoculating with Soil Balance to apply fungicides, nematicides, herbicides, and insecticides. Systemic fungicides and fumigants are not recommended to be used in conjunction with Soil Balance and will render our microbes ineffective. We recommend using contact fungicides only if necessary when using Soil Balance. Soil Balance microbes are designed to be durable and will work well in conventional ecosystems. The only danger is using biocides which kill all microbes off the roots. If biocides are necessary, re apply to plant roots after product efficacy has dissipated.

Soil Balance is designed to be as durable as the people who use it. Do not let it freeze solid and it will work just fine for 1.5 years after opened. Keep out of direct sunlight if possible.

Yes and No. The strains in Soil Balance are all Rhizobacteria. The food they require to live, sustain and thrive comes from the sugars and carbohydrates that the root produces for them. However our strains are also “saprophytes” and they do grow on carbon. Therefore food sources that cover the roots will make them grow faster and allow them to create more of the “secret sauce” or enzymes that plants need, faster. Therefore they do not NEED a food source like may microbe strains but for faster results, add sea minerals, (Water Soluble) Humic Acid with Fulvic, Kelp, Compost Tea, Molasses or any other carbon source you feel comfortable with.

1.5 years after opened. It can be sealed and resealed multiple times. Keep air tight.

Yes. After the crop dies so do most of the strains that are conducive to plant growth in the Rhizosphere. There are 62 different strains in Soil Balance and most die with the plant. With that said, our plants usually live longer lives because our strains understand that their survival is contingent upon the survival of their host plant. (It would be nice if most humans thought this way!) Additionally, salts from over-fertilization, erosion, crop harvest, excessively low or high pH values and low organic matter, affect the value of soil. It is important to use Soil Balance as many times as possible per crop cycle as budgets allow to keep these strains at high levels. Soil Balance microbes work together in a synergistic fashion. Keeping high levels of all 62 strains keeps concentrations of secondary metabolites high.

The strains found in Soil Balance are desert strains. This means that when water is present, desert microbe strains communicate with the plant root to grow larger in the presence of water. Additionally, If water is constant the microbes grow to high numbers and communicate in abundance. They also make macro and micro nutrients in the rhizosphere or root area, instantly available thru mineralization or the formation of humus. With the enzymes Soil Balance microbes create called “secondary metabolites” and bio available nutrients as well as comprehensive soil health, roots grow at exponentially high rates and your plants will reach their full genetic growth potential with every cycle.

Soil Balance is non toxic and has no re-entry period. It is non GMO and 100% organic. It is very user friendly, but it is always advisable to wear protective gear as many people have unpredictable allergies.

No. Soil Balance is pure microbes and will flow thru lines on a microscopic level. Mix well in a vortex for 10 minutes to dissolve completely.

Yes, it is NOT recommended to use a pressure setting above 40 psi. This could have a detrimential effect on the microbes.
