Soil. The only time we might think about it is when it becomes a nuisance, like cleaning up muddy footprints left by the kids or vacuuming that fine, powdery dust tracked in from outside.
It's hard to believe something so innocuous can wield so much power.
But it does.
It can make or break your garden.
Your garden soil isn't just "dirt."
Your soil is alive, teeming with tons of microorganisms that control the flow of carbon, nitrogen, phosphorus, sulfur and other soil nutrients needed to produce a medium that is vital to growing healthy, strong vegetables.
Perfect Balance Custom Fertilizer for Vegetable Gardens provides the best possible growing environment for your plants.
Without maintaining that delicate balance and making sure all the nutrients are kept in check, without having that all-important base from which to start your plants, it may just as well be dirt.
Soil science is extremely complex. But, as everyone knows, for every action there is a reaction.
The microbes in your garden soil flourish when the soil nutrients are in balance. Essentially, when we add fertilizer to our soil, we feed the microbes, which then release nutrients to "feed" the plants. Some even produce substances to help control plant diseases.
When it comes to your soil, that means for every one percent increase in the base saturation of calcium, for example, there is an equal decrease in the base saturation of magnesium. By adding too much of one nutrient, you're almost certain to reduce the availability of one or more of the others. Even too much compost, the super soil-builder gardeners revere, can cause problems.

Boost your plants' immunity to pests.
According to a study conducted by the Ohio State University Department of Entomology, crops grown in soils enriched with natural fertilizers are much less likely to suffer insect pest damage than those grown in soils fed with synthetic fertilizers. For example, European corn borers laid six times more eggs on corn grown in conventionally fertilized soil! Researchers suggest plants grown in chemically fertilized soils have mineral imbalances. This leads to an accumulation of sugars and amino acids, providing "an enriched diet for arthropod herbivores."
The proper balance of soil nutrients results in :
•better nutritional content of the crops.
•vigorous crops that are less vulnerable to insect attack. Perfect Balance Custom Fertilizer for Vegetable Gardens is the perfect prescription for all your garden's needs!
