The Fertilizer Institute (TFI) celebrates the second annual Global Fertilizer Day on October 13, 2017. On Global Fertilizer Day, international agricultural professionals gather to celebrate the key role that fertilizer plays in meeting the growing global demand for nutritious and sustainably-grown food. TFI joins Fertilizers Europe, Fertilizer Canada, the International Fertilizer Association, and the International Plant Nutrition Institute in marking Global Fertilizer Day.
We are the men and women who work in the U.S. fertilizer industry – and we are 89,000 proud. Whether engineers at large-scale fertilizer producers, wholesale workers who store fertilizer until farmers need it or family-owned retailers who work with farmers, we do our jobs with pride.
The food to feed our growing global population depends on a steady supply of fertilizer nutrients before it is harvested. Our highest priority is to ensure that natural resource stewardship, community safety and responsible agricultural practices are part of the equation.
