Plants absorb nutrients through osmosis. Because of this, in order for a nutrient to be available to a plant it must be in an ionized or “chelated” state in which it can bond to soils until dissolved in solution through cation or anion exchange. (Chelation describes a particular way that ions and molecules bind metal ions and is a key component for bioremediation of heavy metals.)


For a nutrient derived from an organic source to be in this form it must go through a complex set of interactions collectively referred to as the nutrient cycle. This cycle involves a multitude of macro and microorganisms that all play specific roles in this system.

With these factors in mind Balance Bac. was designed using these principles to allow for the growth of...
