At Omnia, we believe in a holistic approach to managing crops, in other words, we look after everything, just as our name implies (Omnia means “everything” in Latin).
In order to achieve this, we follow the Nutriology® concept (a word invented by us, meaning “the science of growing”). This means that we take an active interest in the growth of the crop, from before planting, to after the harvest.
This Nutriology® concept ensures that we also focus on the various elements which, lead to agricultural excellence, whether it refers to our product quality, relationships, facilities or technology. These elements are illustrated below (Hover over each element for more information).
We see ourselves as a partner to our client, committed to creating mutual benefit and prosperity in the long term. Our personal approach ensures that we are continuously involved on the farm, not just to sell fertilizer, but also to:
- understand our clients' needs;
- evaluate the previous season’s yield and analyses and, adjust the strategy accordingly;
- assist in planting the next season's crop with our client; and
- become true partners in farming.
We believe in investing in our own business as well as in agriculture as a whole. The following investments are of paramount importance to us:
- people and knowledge;
- facilities - ensuring product quality;
- research and development - offering farmers product choices to complement their changing circumstances; and
- overall development of agriculture.
Our strategy is agronomically driven.
Our competent and qualified agronomists, of which there are more than a hundred, are supported by outstanding technical services. Our agronomists support the sales representatives in the field, and make well-considered fertilizer recommendations based on information and analyses to add value on the farm.
We strongly believe in establishing and developing personal relationships, supported by:
- the representative/agent involved on the farm and in the community;
- understanding the client’s needs and how to address them;
- a comprehensive knowledge of soil and crop production management with unlimited and direct access to our resources; and
- our commitment to adding tangible value on the farm.
A support structure has been created to sustain relationships of mutual value and respect.
Laboratory technicians, planners, schedulers, administrative and production personnel, etc., are not normally directly in contact with our clients, but they fully understand what our clients’ needs are, as well as their role in adding value on the farm.
