It is estimated that by 2030 the world will be populated with nine billion people, putting enormous pressure on natural resources and food security. Given the fact that the available area for food production is decreasing daily, more food needs to be produced per unit of land. This growing demand for agricultural products will mainly affect the markets of developing economies, especially in the most densely populated countries of Asia and sub-Saharan Africa. Therefore, how a country like South Africa will respond to this growing demand will be one of the major determinants of food security locally and in the surrounding areas.
Since 1953, with purposeful planning and actions, Omnia has been positioned to make a positive and significant impact in South Africa’s agricultural sector. Our advice and assistance to clients are supported by a holistic approach based on our Nutriology® model. Nutriology® is an approach that focuses on the growth of agricultural crops by developing and then applying specialised products, innovative solutions, technology, services, and client relationships that strives to promote sustainability. Nutriology® refers to a total crop management process and is applied throughout a crop’s lifecycle to increase yield, reduce the risk associated with crop production and increase the farmer’s return on investment.
Omnia Nutriology® is based on twelve core principles that, in our opinion, will ensure the future success of all parties involved in our business, from our suppliers to our shareholders and customers. It is supported by the OMNIA Nutriology® Solutions Development department whose members constantly strive to develop specialised solutions and products with the use of integrated technology, knowledge, and innovative ideas.
