Atlas Fertilizer Corporation (AFC), incorporated on October 10, 1957, is the oldest operating and the first fertilizer company in the Philippines to achieve full scale manufacturing of a complete line of mixed fertilizer grades, alternatively known as compound inorganic fertilizer and more famously called by our farmers as the NP- NPK- NK fertilizers.

N-stands for Nitrogen, while P-stands for Phosphorus and K- stands for Potassium. These are the primary elements required by plants to support its nutrient requirements during the different growing stages from maturity upto harvest. The correct amount of fertilizer nutrients that will be applied, will depend on the available nutrients present in the soil. This amount should harmonize with the requirements of the crop and variety that will be planted in a specific field in order to attain bountiful harvest.

DIAGRAM OF PLANT FOODS

The diagram shows the complete essential elements/nutrients needed by the crop in order to sustain normal growth and development. These nutrients can be obtained from the soil which includes the macronutrients that are required by plants in higher amounts and micronutrients that are needed in smaller quantities. While macronutrients and micronutrients can be found naturally in the soil and can be supplied by inorganic fertilizers that we have, carbon, oxygen and water are naturally occurring elements and substance that are equally necessary for photosynthesis to take place with the presence of sunlight. This food making process in the plant converts all these materials into nutrients to form amino acids and proteins that is necessary for the development of plant organs which includes roots, stem, leaves, flower and fruits.

FACTORS THAT AFFECT FERTILIZER APPLICATION – 4Rs. “RIGHT KIND, RIGHT AMOUNT, RIGHT PLACEMENT, RIGHT TIMING”.
