We consider an i.i.d. balanced environment  $\omega(x,e)=\omega(x,-e)$,genuinely d dimensional on the lattice and show that there exist a
positive constant $C$ and a random radius $R(\omega)$ with streched
exponential tail such that every non negative
$\omega$ harmonic function $u$ on the ball  $B_{2r}$ of radius
we have $\max_{B_r} u <= C \min_{B_r} u$. Our proof relies on a quantitative quenched invariance principle for the corresponding random walk in  balanced random environment and a careful analysis of the directed percolation cluster. This result extends Martins Barlow’s Harnack’s inequality for i.i.d. bond percolation to the directed case.
