BalX DIY Complete 16-4-8 Fertilizer

Complete Lawn Fertilizer

BalX DIY Complete 16-4-8 Logo
BalX DIY (pronounced: Balance DIY) is a truly complete lawn fertilizer good for all grass types, any time of year. The analysis is 16-4-8 which means it contains the big 3 macronutrients lawns need for healthy, sustained growth and vigor. It also contains essential micronutrients iron, magnesium, manganese and zinc.

Additionally, BalX DIY is 12% biochar infused with chicken litter to help improve soil health and structure with every application.
As with all Carbon Earth fertilizers, BalX DIY is enhanced with root promoting peptides as a biostimulant, however, the peptides are delivered through an enhanced technology known as “ZNAR.”

What is ZNAR Technology?
  • ZNAR technology was developed to improve nitrogen efficiency by helping crops (turf is our crop) increase the ability to uptake and metabolize nitrogen quickly and effectively, maximizing the benefits of nitrogen applications.
  • ZNAR enhances the plant’s ability to assimilate nitrogen and other nutrients by regulating specific metabolic pathways and enzymes within the plant structure.
  • Improved metabolism for increased plant growth, root growth, and greater crop yield potential.
  • Use with traditional nitrogen fertilizers and in addition to nitrogen stabilizers (Balx DIY prills are coated with ZNAR)
Vegetal Protein Hydrolysate products are made exclusively from the highest quality, non-GMO vegetal sources and are guaranteed to contain no harmful or inefficient animal by-products. They are produced using a proprietary Enzymatic Hydrolysis process that results in less than 1% free amino acids and a high concentration in more desirable peptide chains. We call them Plant Stimulating Peptides.
Unlike free amino acids, Plant Stimulating Peptides have a more prominent, assured, and natural biostimulant effect to enhance nutrient absorption, mitigate the effects of abiotic stress and increase fertilizer efficiency.
