Athena Balance: Potassium Silicate Solution for pH Stabilisation and Plant Growth
Athena Balance is a highly concentrated potassium silicate formula designed to buffer irrigation water and stabilise its pH level. In addition, this solution boosts plant growth, enhances stem structure, reduces stress, optimises water usage, and improves nutrient absorption. Commercial growers, especially those using reverse osmosis (RO) water, find better results when pre-buffering with Athena Balance.
Features and Benefits
- Highly Concentrated Formula: Athena Balance’s concentrated potassium silicate content helps buffer and stabilise pH levels in irrigation water, ensuring optimal nutrient availability for plants.
- Boosts Plant Growth and Stem Structure: Silicon in this solution enhances overall plant growth and leads to stronger stem structure.
- Stress Reduction and Osmoregulation: Utilising Athena Balance will aid plants in managing stress better and maintaining proper water balance.
- Improved Nutrient Utilisation: This formula ensures that plants can effectively absorb and utilise essential nutrients, leading to better growth and health.
- Sediment-Free and Compatible with Mechanical Dosing Systems: Athena Balance is sediment-free, making it suitable for use with mechanical dosing systems like Dosatron. However, it is not recommended for electronic dosing systems like Netafim.
How to Use
- Choose the appropriate Athena Balance size and concentration for your plants and irrigation system.
- Consult the Athena Balance label or feeding schedule for specific dilution ratios and application frequency.
- Always add Athena Balance to the water first, before mixing in other nutrients or additives. This ensures a more homogenous fertiliser solution and eliminates the need for pH adjustments afterward.
- Continue to monitor pH levels in your irrigation water and adjust Athena Balance dosage as needed to maintain optimal growing conditions for your plants.
