What sets Atlas apart from other fertilisers is the ability to supply plant nutrition in an environmentally friendly manner. By using beneficial biological elements to our advantage we significantly improve the efficiency of achieving the desired outcome for growers. The biological aspects regenerate soils while the fortified minerals support economic viability. Furthermore, a bag of Atlas contains up to fifteen nutritional components more than a bag of conventional fertiliser. Both the expertise and the product offering within Atlas are unique – the two together deliver exceptional results for growers.


Atlas can custom blend fertilisers to you soil and crop demands. Atlas considers a Broad spectrm of nutrients: Nitrogen (N), Phosphate (P), Potassium (K), Calcium (Ca), Magnesium (Mg), Sulphur (S), Silica (Si), Iron (Fe), Zinc (Zn), Copper (Cu), Manganese (Mn), Boron (B), Molybdenum (Mo) plus many trace elements which are not even quantified but play a role in balancing the chemical relationships between nutrients. These are naturally found in the organic substrate of our fertilisers.


Atlas places emphasis on the principles of organic chemistry and bio-chemistry. This means we use the natural synergy which micro-organisms and plants have developed over millions of years to increase plant productivity. By fortifying organic material with mineral fertilisers one increases the nutrient availability of the mineral fertilisers, thus the plant is able to develop a strong internal immune system.


Atlas has a regenerative effect on soils. We see this on a daily basis when farmers who have historically farmed with conventional chemical practices start following Atlas programs. This results in economic gain from the get-go while sustainably managing the soil into a rejuvenated state. This coupled with the holistic approach by Atlas’ technical consultants ensure  crop management is at its optimal.


Atlas has expertise which have been developed since 1966. This means we have the ability to advise on a range of crops. From home gardens to high value tree crops like citrus and avocados, commodity crops, and the cover crops which don’t bring money this season but keep the soil healthy for next season. Atlas’ technical expertise is second to none and all with a biological slant from before biological farming was the ‘in thing’.


The presence of organics in close proximity to mineral fertilisers helps buffer the effects of pH and other adverse chemical imbalances in the soil. Thus protecting the mineral fertilisers from becoming unavailable to the plant. This also applies to leaching, a scenario where nutrients are ‘washed’ out of the soil by irrigation or heavy rains.


Although Atlas has a greater upfront cost (because it includes so many more nutritional components) the result is greater than the sum of the parts. This means that the profit margin on crops grown with Atlas is bigger.


Sustained release differs from slow release in that the nutrients in an Atlas product are quickly available yet have a sustained availability to the plant. Pure chemical fertilisers are quickly available but also can quickly become unavailable. Slow release fertilisers are slow to release but remain available for extended periods of time. Reduced leaching and runoff are only one of the many benefits experienced when using Atlas fertilizers


Atlas increases carbon sequestration through increased plant photosynthesis and microbial sugar feeding. Coupled with many other benefits as mentioned above, this means crops are grown with less inputs and more nutrient dense produce.

Pioneering Biological Farming


Plant nutrition involving organic material enriched with essential chemical elements is an old European concept. It is widely recognised as the best practice for achieving optimal plant development while protecting the soils sustainability. This concept was brought to South Africa by the Benecke family and lead to the establishment of Atlas Organic Fertilisers Pty. (Ltd.) on the 7th of March 1966. The approach of holistic soil management has been the key to success for thousands of farmers during the more than 50 years of Atlas Organic Fertilisers in Southern Africa. It is evident that this approach is going to become the norm of sustainable practice in African agriculture.

Complete and Balanced Plant Nutrition is an investment that determines produce quality without compromising quantity.

Crops need more than N, P, and K, to reach full potential. The cost of implementing this approach is negligible when it comes to harvest. Increased yield with increased quality is what planting Atlas will achieve. Resilience to pests and disease comes standard.


Atlas Organic Products


The environmental difference


Our products and practices are founded on the philosophy of biological sustainability. The integration of mineral inputs with biological elements promotes beneficial biodiversity rather than sterile farming environments. We are highly conscious of the importance of healthy soil in an ecosystem and therefore promote farming practices that are in synergy with the environment. Our product is a complete, balanced, biological nutrition solution.

First hand experience from farmers on the ground


I have been using Atlas for 2 seasons, once in 2017 and now in 2021, and, we will continue Atlas regenerates my soils by firstly aiding us in getting the soil optimally balanced (CEC) and furthermore supplying us with a healthier (manure) and cost effective fertilizer. I have noticed strong and vigorous germination, nice healthy looking plants when using Atlas. The biological component of Atlas helps/increases/prevents us tremendously in our management being that one application covers about 80% of our total need, theoretically our yields should increase (looks like they do), and the incorporation of micro/biological nutrients/elements is of tremendous value.Absolutely excellent service by our agent, Corne Engelbrecht, in Limpopo, as well as professional and timeous advice from the “landboukundige”

I have used Atlas consistently for 9 years on my farm and have noticed huge improvements in my soil quality and ease of tilling as well consistently high yields in both my fruit bearing and leafy crops. My land is farmed intensely and I have been able to produce top quality produce consistently. The produce from River Valley Farm has a reputation in the Durban Market for commanding the highest prices, due to its shelf life and quality. I make every effort to farm sustainably and consistently and I believe in doing all I can to improve and balance my soil quality. Atlas plays a major and key role in these efforts. To me as a crop farmer, the phrase "Balanced Biological Plant Nutrition" means that the nutrition supplied to the crop is adequate for the yield expectation, covers most basic macro and micro nutrient requirements, adds sufficient carbon to the soil to maximise the nutrient uptake and reduce leachate, as well as improving and sustaining the soil biology. Increases fruit quality, shelf life and yield. Helps the plant to withstand disease pressure and reduces disease prevalence.I have noticed more earthworms, softer soil, reduced tilling effort, markedly better shelf life when using Atlas. Thank you Atlas & Dave Launder

I have been using Atlas for 18 seasons. To me as a crop farmer, the phrase "Balanced Biological Plant Nutrition" means farming in harmony with nature, but ensuring economical returns.My crops have better quality/yield/consistency due to a balanced “diet” I feel that using fortified organic fertilizer is sustainable because it sustains our soils and comes from sustainable sources. I would recommend Atlas and the agent Skip Scheepers to anyone wanting to improve their soil and tree health in the Tzaneen, Limpopo area.

Since I started using Atlas Organic Fertilisers my garlic crop’s shelf life has improved dramatically, increasing the time I have to sell my crops, thus enabling me to realise better prices. Atlas also boosted the oil yield from pressed garlic, realising greater income. In short – Atlas translates to more money in my pocket. Thanks to our Atlas agent: Phillipus Breyl.
