About MainFert - Your Nutrient Partner

We like to think of ourselves as providing solutions to a whole range of challenges facing today’s primary producers. There is no “silver bullet” product out there – just good innovative advice based on research and experience.

WELCOME TO MainFert

Your Nutrient Partner

MainFert is a rapidly growing and recognised fertiliser company giving personalised service to our clients. It is an independent and locally owned company employing dedicated representatives covering the country.

We have been in business for over 30 years offering environmentally sustainable alternatives to habitual fertiliser companies. We focus on the client, the farming system, the soil and the long term.

Like all businesses we have grown and evolved over time, many will remember us as Mainland Minerals. Mid 2020 we conducted a company review and felt  our brand name needed to evolve and more accurately reflect what we do and how we help our clients in todays environment.   

MainFert is still grounded by all the same principals and values you’ve come to know and trust, it’s business as usual, just with a different name.

What drives us

Our Philosophy

We help farmers to achieve their financial and environmental goals through their biggest asset, their soil. We have a no nonsense range of fertilisers, offering value for investment and proven results.

Soil is the foundation of primary production. Mainfert’s approach is to balance the 3 key parameters of the soil – chemical, biological and physical.

Achieving this balance gives an efficient, working soil system, as nature intended. To us a spade is one of the most important tools a fertiliser rep can carry – we look for good rooting depth, plenty of worms and a well aggregated soil structure.
