BALANCED PLANT NUTRITION
For Optimal Plant Functionality
Plants need a range of essential elements. With intensive farming these elements are "mined", and it is imperative to replenish them to meet the needs of your crops. Atlas supplies all these secondary, micro and trace elements in custom mixes. It is much cheaper to farm with healthy plants than applying products to help sick plants.

IMPROVE SOIL PROPERTIES
Physically and Chemically
Organic acids derived from microbial activity condition the soil chemically by buffering against salts and unbalanced pH. The physical structure resulting from their presence increases water penetration and retention, reducing risk of erosion and evaporation. By using Atlas you promote light, fluffy soils.The result: root development and increased nutrient uptake potential.

MICRO-ORGANISM STIMULATION
The Catalyst for Plant and Soil Synergy
It is common knowledge that plants work with micro-organisms to make effective use of their environment. Micro-organisms protect and transfer nutrients from the soil to the roots. In return, plants exude sugars produced during photosynthesis for the microbes to thrive upon. Atlas provides the organic carbon necessary to initiate this symbiosis in the rizosphere.

REDUCED FIXATION AND LEACHING
Make your application Effective and save
Healthy soil ecology results in chemical compounds dissociating and forming chelates compatible with plant uptake. In wet or sandy conditions this reduces the risk of leaching. In unbalanced soils, risk is managed against fixation. Atlas makes each application effective, saving you money by converting fertiliser into quality tons.

THE ECONOMIC DIFFERENCE

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 strives for effective fertilisation, not cheap fertilisation. Ammonium Sulfate is positively charged which reduces the risk of losses. That is why we use it as a Nitrogen source. Atlas has over 50 years of experience in what is best for the crop, and uses only the best sources to answer your needs. MAP, SilFos, KCl and Potassium Sulfate are the other sources of macro nutrients. Depending on your crops needs, speak to an Atlas Agronomist about the economic advantages of each product. We are not going to sell you something we don’t believe in.

Plants need sulfur for protein synthesis. They need it in similar ratios to Phosphate. This is just one example of the many chemical relationships one needs to consider when aiming for top results. Atlas ensures your plants receive these chemicals in compatible form to get the highest possible synthesis rates and associated harvest market value. All secondary nutrient values are calculated and added to make that kernel, fruit, stem, branch, tuber and leaf function to its absolute potential.

Coffee in the morning: Boron in the evening. Fat in boerewors: Zinc in your clovelly. Sugar in a koeksister: Copper in roots. You need them. So do plants. Not negotiable. These nutrients are only needed in small quantities to trigger certain functions. Budding, blooming, setting and colouring are as a direct or indirect result of chemical signals given by the presence of micro and trace elements. Don’t compromise the health of your crop.

ABOUT ATLAS

over 50 years experience in crop fertilisation.

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.
