A Message From CEO of Wesfarmers Chemicals, Energy & Fertilisers and Chairman of IFA’s Agriculture Committee, Ian Hansen

Amid growing climate change and environmental concerns, IFA and the fertilizer industry are more dedicated than ever to finding and creating solutions to facilitate more sustainable plant nutrition around the world.

This June saw the inaugural Plant Nutrition Startup Showcase at IFA’s Annual Conference in Montreal which highlighted a range of plant nutrient innovations from agtech startups and helped foster closer connections between new companies and the fertilizer industry.

IFA is also organizing its first ever High-Level Forum in November. This multi-stakeholder dialogue between the fertilizer industry and key international organizations will explore developments in technology, research and policy that can help us address the challenges and opportunities of fast-changing agricultural systems.

In this edition of IFA’s F&A newsletter, we look at a few of the many innovations in both fertilizer application and production that are helping to make plant nutrition more sustainable:

From techniques and inventions that are making the production of fertilizers ever more efficient, to a range of technology-based innovations, investments and startups that are improving nutrient management, increasing yields and reducing the industry’s environmental footprint.

We hope you enjoy reading about some of the many ways that technology is helping the world of plant nutrition to rapidly evolve and improve.
