In recent years, the application of nuclear radiation in the agricultural sector has gained beneficial importance in optimising crop yields in terms of managing irrigation.


Sodium (Na) is one of the sixteen elements determined in a routine sap analysis in Omnia Fertilizer’s OmniSap® laboratory.


With a growing world population that needs to be fed and an increased social and urban demand for land, it is no wonder that there is an urgent call for a second Green Revolution.


Soil health is a fairly new concept that deals with the integration and optimisation of the chemical, physical and biological processes of soil that are important for sustained productivity and environmental quality.


Soil is arguably the most valuable and non-renewable resource, considering that it is the absolute basis of plant life which is therefore central to sustaining human life.


Water conservation is an important topic, especially in South Africa. Water is essential to almost every industry imaginable, and agriculture is no exception.


There are a variety of factors associated with crop yield and the risks involved with farming. The four most important factors that influence crop yield are soil fertility, availability of water, climate, and diseases or pests.


Soil health is a vital component to any successful farm. The health of one’s soil directly affects crop yield, with healthier soil generally producing increased yields.


Omnia Nutriology® places a big emphasis on sustainability. Mismanaged crops and fields can result in decreased crop yield, which we aim to mitigate with our precision agriculture programme, OmniPrecise®.


Omnia Nutriology® boasts accredited, world-class laboratories, comprising our Chemtech Agri laboratories and our OmniBio™ research and development units.
