So composters produce ammonium... From there - nitrifying bacteria turn it into No2- or what might be called.. Nitrites.


They become Nitrates because of the activity of 'Nitrifying Bacteria' - known as - NO3- ...

From there they are either - asimilated into the plant directly , as NO3- or - the NO3- dissipates into the atmosphere.

Is that a fair assesment of the chart??!?
Now that I know that clay's texture(platelets) has nothing to do with water infiltration, percolation, or drainage
,,, I wonder what does...
