Omnia's Agriculture division comprises Omnia Fertilizer and Omnia Specialities and is the market leader in its field in South Africa and southern Africa. The division has its main production facilities in Sasolburg supported by an extensive logistics infrastructure footprint across South Africa and the African continent. In addition to its large-scale production facilities in Sasolburg, the division has extensive knowledge and strong relationships with clients through its agronomic unit, playing a key role in advising farmers throughout the planting season on how to improve the various aspects of farming practice and providing them with advice and technology to do so.
We create value for our investors, customers and employees by producing and selling ammonium nitrate-based, chemically-granulated compounds, liquids and speciality fertilizer and fertilizer blends, supported by a range of value-added and risk mitigation services and knowledge.
The Agriculture division’s competitive advantage lies in Nutriology™, which Omnia calls the “science of growing”. This is Omnia’s business philosophy and involves more than just selling fertilizer to farmers – it is about optimising yield and crop quality for maximum returns while reducing farming and environmental risks. Achieving this, entails becoming intricately involved in the producers’ business to better understand their objectives and targets. Nutriology™ also includes cuttingedge research and development that results in new products, services and farming practices. The Omnia Nutriology™ brand is highly regarded in the regional market and strongly supports management’s vision of “creating customer wealth by leveraging knowledge”.

While other markets such as Botswana, the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Lesotho, Ethiopia, Kenya, Malawi, Namibia, Swaziland and Tanzania are serviced from South Africa. This includes our distribution and logistics network.
