Athena Balance is a simple formula of potassium silicate specifically concentrated to buffer irrigation water and stabilise to ideal pH. Silicon additionally benefits plant growth, stem structure, stress reduction, water usage (osmoregulation), and nutrient utilisation.
Commercial growers find better results, particularly with reverse osmosis (RO) water, when buffering first with Athena Balance. Pure RO water has unstable chemical structure that can trap other nutrients when added without a buffer. Athena Balance adds just enough to the water to create a more homogenous fertiliser solution and reduce the need to pH adjust after mixing.
Formula is sediment-free and is compatible with mechanical dosing systems (Dosatron). Athena Balance is not recommended for electronic dosing systems (Netafim).
CONTAINS BENEFICIAL SUBSTANCE 5% Silicon Dioxide derived from potassium silicate
APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS Athena Balance provides essential nutrients for crops in any stage of growth. It is also effective for adjusting pH up without harsh chemicals. Recommended for use with batch tank mixing and Dosatron. Do not use with Netaflex (or other electronic dosers). Mix at 1 – 4 mL per gallon of water through vegetative and flowering stages as needed.
BEST PRACTICES • Agitate before mixing and dosing to ensure homogeneous solution. • Compatible with other fertilisers and crop protection products. • Add first to reverse osmosis (RO) water to help buffer for better solution stability.
STORAGE Store closed in original packaging at a temperature between 45º F and 85º F. Two year shelf-life from manufacturer date if stored properly.
