Fertilizer Demand Forecasts Working Group
The Secretariat works closely with correspondents who provide information on the agricultural situation and fertilizer consumption in their respective countries.
In addition, the Working Group on Fertilizer Demand Forecasts provides guidance to the Secretariat regarding the forecasting methodology, the programme of the annual Fertilizer Demand Meeting
, and any other relevant issue that relates to demand statistics and forecasts.
Short- and medium- term demand forecasts
are prepared and presented by the Secretariat during the IFA Annual Conference and the IFA Strategic Forum.
The database on historical fertilizer consumption statistics, IFADATA
is updated on a yearly basis, and the assessment of fertilizer use by crop
on average every three years.
