The Green Revolution

Since 1994, Atens has evolved from the pioneer in microorganisms, into the worldwide reference in the biofertilizer and biostimulant segment through a singular focus on delivering the ultimate biosolutions, day after day.

We investigate, produce and commercialize innovative microbiological solutions in nutrition, biostimulation, and plant protection, based on natural active substances for the care of crops, health, and the environment.

Our innovative technologies are a win-win: they decrease the use of traditional fertilizers and chemical pesticides while reducing their environmental impact, and still achieve the farmers’ yield and profit goals.

30 years of proven innovation

From its beginning in 1994, Atens has redefined and revolutionized the way farmers cultivate their land today.

Atens’ history is marked by our passion for nature and track record of continuous innovation to consistently deliver the best-performing biotech solutions. 

To do so, we collaborate with an extensive network of international public and private centres and organizations, including scientists and agro-industrialists from prestigious Research Centers, Universities, and Institutions. 

Together, we investigate the biological mechanisms and how they transform life to discover breakthrough solutions that are 100% sustainable.

Quality certificates

Atens complies with the highest market standards and holds various ISO certificates to corroborate it.

What we do

Trichoderma

Trichoderma are saprophytic fungi that feed on organic matter. They are able to rapidly colonize the rhizosphere and can substantially improve plant development and health.

Mycorrhiza

Mycorrhiza is the symbiotic relationship between the roots of a plant and certain soil fungi that optimize plant growth and development. The mycorrhizae colonize the roots, and in exchange for plant photosynthesized, it facilitates greater and better absorption of nutrients and water.  
Learn more

Bacteria

Plant growth promoting bacteria (PGPB) are microorganisms present in the rhizosphere of healthy plants.
Learn more

Microbial Mix

A complete portfolio of microbial-based products that promote balanced growth and ensure the success of crops. Biostimulants with a starter effect, and enriched with a patented technology that improves water availability to plants and microorganisms in the rhizosphere while preventing the leaching of nutrients in episodes of excessive irrigation.
Learn more

Seed Treatment

Biostimulants designed to increase the resistance of crops to situations of abiotic stress, enhancing the root system.

The challenge of Green Revolution

Atens began with a simple but game-changer idea: Ignite the green revolution. 

We offer the biotechnology you need to drive you business forward and overcome yous challenges.

Empowering power

We empower you with the growth of your crops, to give you the confidence to make your goals a reality and, together, make a difference.

Accelerate the transition

This vision and innovation is something that Atens has delivered, and will continue to deliver, to make the world a better place.

As a native sustainable brand, Atens is at the forefront of the sector, playing an integral part in its evolution. Our strong voice is one that’s listened to, is different, and relied on.

A sustainable future

Our commitment to a sustainable agriculture is in every detail. It starts with partnering with a scientific network and discovering solutions, and continues all the way through caring for the soil where crops grow and collaborating with farmers.

Everything that we do raises the bar on what it means to be both, performant and sustainable.

Unlock the power of microorganisms

We believe in the power of nature to thrive. As we delve into the amazing world of fungi, we realize how wise and fascinating nature is.

Nature offers endless possibilities; from mycorrhiza’s symbiosis to Trichoderma that competes with other fungi for space and nutrients. At Atens, we explore and decode nature’s incredible properties, to provide powerful products and services, while delivering confidence and know-how.
