Who we are.
IFA is the only global fertilizer association and has a membership of more than 450 entities in some 80 countries, encompassing all actors in the fertilizer value chain.
Fertilizers are fundamental to agriculture and our challenge is to feed the world sustainably. Sustainable fertilizer production is key to increasing our industry’s energy efficiency and reducing CO2 emissions.
We work across the agriculture value chain to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and increase sequestration of carbon in soil.
Fertilizers are used across the globe to support sustainable agricultural production, and it is estimated that half the food we eat is produced thanks to mineral fertilizers.
What are fertilizers?
Fertilizers are food for plants: they provide nutrients for plants to grow and thrive. It is estimated that half the food we eat is produced thanks to mineral fertilizers.
IFA members, and the agriculture sector as a whole, are continuously working to improve the performance and sustainability of fertilizers and their application.
