    Reducing Emissions

OMEX crop leaves graphic
UK Farmers are working towards a sustainable future by reducing emissions and improving nitrogen use efficiency to sustainably feed a growing population.

OMEX are working with farmers across the globe to maximise efficiency, quality and yield, using their global research and development programme to identify the most effective techniques and products.
The checkpoints on the path to NetZero Farming include carbon footprinting, identifying and managing soil greenhouse gas emissions, seeking suppliers using renewable energy sources and working with suppliers that are actively seeking solutions to control and reducing emissions. The OMEX local liquid fertiliser experts can assist with checkpoint information and help you plan your route.

NprotectioN for your crops

DIDIN

With a sustainable future on the horizon providing protection to the nitrogen you apply will be crucial in improving nitrogen use efficiency, lowering emissions and improving yields.
OMEX offer NprotectioN with DIDIN, a urease and nitrification inhibitor, with over 30 years proven results.

How It Works

DIDIN protects the nitrogen until it’s safely in the ground, and delivers a steady supply of nitrogen to the plant throughout the growing season, meaning the full seasons nitrogen can be applied in one simple pass – saving time and reducing passes over the soil.

DIDIN is formulated with NprotectioN technology, with urease and nitrification inhibitors, ensuring the safe delivery of crop available nitrogen throughout the season, leading to improved quality and yield. The nitrification and urease inhibitors control the release of nitrate nitrogen and reduce the risk of ammonia and nitrous oxide emissions, increasing yield, reducing application costs and simplifying the nitrogen management of the crop.

Tried and Tested

DIDIN, is the most proven nitrification and urease inhibitor, with over 30 years of nitrogen use efficiency data. Trials consistently demonstrate improved yield and reduced emissions, where DIDIN has been used:

  • 7.7% yield increase
  • 66% reduction in nitrous oxide emissions
  • 49.5% reduction in nitrate leaching

Numerous OMEX trials have taken an in depth look at how farmers can best achieve a positive increase in nitrogen use efficiency, comparing different forms of fertiliser, different application timings and the use of inhibitors, with DIDIN consistently producing a healthier, higher yielding, crop.
