The CEO of COCOBOD says most Ghanaian farmers are not intended with fertilizer however the use of fertilizer can quadruple farm produce hence the Ghana Cocoa Board has began sensitizing farmers on it need.
He therefore commended Omnifert for bringing in this locally made fertilizer at this time when the cocoa sector is in dire need of good fertilize.
The OmniFert Fertilizer Factory was established in the year 2017. The company sprung out of Omni Energy Limited ,which is the parent company. Omni Energy is one of the leading provider of Engineering and Value Added Oil Field Support Services in the Oil and Gas industry in Ghana for over ten years.
OmniFert has been working over the years to support the transformation of the Agro-Chemical Industry in Ghana for a sustainable food security in future. The company combines economic success with environmental protection and social responsibility.
Locally based state-of-the art fertilizer-blending facility is the first of its kind in Ghana. This is as a result of the premium the company places on improving crop production in Ghana and Africa at large.
OmniFert’s approach is not only about providing affordable and quality fertilizer to farmers but focused on providing the right specifications of fertilizer according to the soil and crop types.
By doing this, OmniFert demonstrates its commitment to improving agricultural productivity incomes and employment opportunities in Ghana. The company is also committed to doing the same in the other West African countries in which OmniFert operate through the parent company.
Some of the specific ways to address this include:
Establishing commercial sized farms to produce crops such as cassava, millet,
sorghum, maize soya, and other grains to bridge the gaps in the local supply
conducting soll tests on farms so as to accurately determine the fertilizer needs
specific to each farm supplying all kinds of fertilizers notably Urea, Ammonium
Sulphate as well as NPK.
OmniFert aims at supplying quality variety fertilizers to farmers in Ghana and the landlocked West Africa countries of Mali, Burkina Faso and Niger, OmniFert also aims at blending Nitrogen, Phosphate and Potash fertilizers into NPK, in the right proportions to meet the soil types in the local blending facility at the Dawhenya blending factory.
OmniFert is led by Mr. Michael Zormelo, the founder and Managing Director. He is ably supported by a highly skilled and vibrant team. OmniFert’s passion and commitment is to provide right environment for all the actors and factors to thrive in the area of the agribusiness
