The Industry Nutrient Stewardship Commitments


Nutrient stewardship refers to the efficient and effective planning and management of plant nutrients in a manner that improves the social, economic and environmental performance of mineral and organic fertilizers.

Closely aligned to IFA’s Mission to “promote the efficient and responsible production, distribution and use of plant nutrients”, the IFA Nutrient Stewardship Commitments reaffirm the overarching goal of IFA members to help farmers to improve nutrient use efficiency and effectiveness, in order to optimize plant nutrient uptake and minimize nutrient losses to the environment.
