Terra Victus operations
Terra Victus has an established fertilizer processing facility in Heidelberg, Gauteng Province. The open area windrow composting facility can process up to 40000 tons of fertilizer per annum and can easily be increased. The compost materials are then processed through a blender and pelletizing plant to produce a pellet that can be administered to the crop by hand or mechanised fertilizer application equipment.
The range of Terra Victus blended fertilizer is available in:
- Polyethylene bags (25kg) for the consumer market;
- 50 kg bags for nurseries, under cover and small holding farmer; and
- Bulk deliveries for large scale, commercial farming applications.
The Terra Victus range of fertilizer is high in nutrient value that can be ascribed to the source of organic materials used and the addition of specific plant nutrients and carbon activator, a scientifically formulated chemical blend of organic acids and natural compounds. Terra Victus utilises a wide range of intensive farming waste products of animal and plant origin that contain high concentrations of micro elements.
The source material is carefully screened and selected for application in the Terra Victus process. The aerobic and anaerobic decomposition process ensures that all the nutrients and carbon are made available in the fertilizer. The fertilizer is then formulated for each specific application/crop through the addition of chemical fertilizers and the carbon activator.
