Our Ethos on Precision Farming

Precision Farming has always been an integral part of our liquid fertiliser business. Liquid fertilisers are more accurate, more available and less wasteful – supporting many farmers to produce sustainably.

The precise application that liquid fertiliser offers has been consistently proven by yield improvements in trials. We firmly believe in our “3 R’s” approach:

The Right Product, In The Right Place, At The Right Time

Analysis Services

Farmers should be utilising analysis service to ensure the right amount of product is used, improving nutrient use efficiency and financial sustainability of the farm, so no input is unnecessarily over-applied. OMEX offer a suite of analysis services such as: Soil Testing, SMN Plus and SAP Testing.

Farmers can also utilise external service such as Grain Testing and Post-Harvest NUE Assessment to continually evolve their operation.
Our liquid fertilisers offer farmers the right combination throughout the entire growing cycle of the crop including Nitroflo Liquid N+S fertilisers Multiflo Liquid NPKS fertilisers, speciality foliar fertilisers and inhibitors.

Our range of inhibitors and additives ensure losses and wastage is minimised on farm! Contact our team to find out more.

The Environmental Benefits of Liquid Fertiliser

No Wastage

Bulk liquid fertiliser can be returned to the tank if it’s not all needed, making it a much more sustainable fertiliser application , with no over applying of unnecessary product.

Improved Accuracy

Liquid fertiliser is quickly absorbed into the ground and utilised We employ a dedicated tank inspection team to help you site your OMEX liquid fertiliser storage tank in the most efficient and safe site. Bunding of tanks ensures protection for the farm and the environment.by the crop. Unlike granular fertiliser liquid is directly applied where the crop needs it, avoiding run off into nearby watercourses.

Safe Storage

We employ a dedicated tank inspection team to help you site your OMEX liquid fertiliser storage tank in the most efficient and safe site. Bunding of tanks ensures protection for the farm and the environment for safe and sustainable fertiliser storage.

No Plastic Packaging

OMEX liquid fertilisers are supplied in dedicated tanks, negating wasteful plastic packaging and cost. We employ a team of tank inspectors to work with you on placing your tank in the most environmentally friendly location.

Reducing Emissions

Inhibitors form a key part of ensuring liquid fertilisers remain a sustainable choice. DIDIN reduces nitrous oxide emissions and improves carbon footprint. NitroShield reduces ammonia emissions

Our Environmental Objectives

We’ve developed some key environmental objectives as we gain momentum on our sustainability journey. These key objectives will help us provide more sustainable liquid fertilisers and form a greener part of the food supply chain. Our entire business is working towards these goals set by Max Winkler, Executive Chairman of OMEX Agriculture.

Our Environmental Objective

Pollution Prevention

Our goal is to implement initiatives to prevent any pollution to our physical environment including air, water or soil.

Zero Emissions

We aim to continue to reduce carbon dioxide emissions, which contribute to global warming and be carbon neutral for our scope 1 emissions by 2035

Zero Landfill Waste

We plan to eliminate all discharge to landfill, with no manufacturing waste from our facilities going to landfill sites.

Resource Conservation

We will use resources such as water, energy, and raw materials efficiently and ethically.

Understanding and Reducing Carbon Footprint

We’re working hard to reduce the carbon footprint of fertilisers on the planet, from factory to farm. We’re committed to addressing both on-farm and in-house carbon footprint.

Reducing Our Footprint, Reducing Your Footprint, Sustainably Growing Together

We’re also passionate about reducing on-farm carbon footprint with the use of inhibitors and promoting Nitrogen Use Efficiency. Alongside researching the most innovative application methods for farmers

Decarbonising our products

Decarbonised liquid fertiliser will be a key milestone in producing food more sustainably. Our procurement team are actively sourcing lower-carbon raw materials to reduce the carbon footprint of both ourselves and farmers.

On our mission to help develop a circular economy and encourage sustainable fertiliser use our R&D function is researching the most innovative sources to lower the carbon footprint of existing products and supply new green ranges. We’re currently evaluating blue, green and white ammonia as the next step in our sustainability journey.
