The International Fertilizer Industry Association (IFA) represents the global fertilizer industry and works to promote the industry through its research and outreach initiatives. IFA holds that the efficient and responsible production, distribution and use of plant nutrients play a vital role in achieving global food security and sustainable development. To continually support and work towards these goals IFA regularly promotes pieces that focus on issues relating to nutrient stewardship.
Below is a link to a paper promoted in the most recent IFA newsletter and published with the French FARM Foundation. The paper provides a brief overview of plant nutrients and their contribution to food security, outlines how nutrients can be lost to the environment, and then brings attention to key elements of “responsible” plant nutrition. researchoutreach initiatives.
