ResponsibleAg Inc. is a non-profit organization founded in 2014. It exists to promote the public welfare by assisting agribusinesses seeking to comply with federal environmental, health, safety and security rules.

The organization provides participating businesses with a federal regulatory compliance audit relating to the safe storage and handling of fertilizers. It also recommends corrective action where needed and offers a robust suite of resources to assist in this regard.

The fertilizer industry recognizes the need to efficiently utilize nutrients in sustainable crop production. 4R Nutrient Stewardship provides science-based information for stakeholders to use for the education, advocacy and implementation of crop nutrient stewardship. It provides information on best management practices that benefit both the environment and the producer’s bottom line.

This site is a collaborative effort of the fertilizer industry. The guidelines for the 4R principles are endorsed and supported by the International Plant Nutrition Institute, The Fertilizer Institute, Fertilizer Canada and the International Fertilizer Industry Association.

4R Farming was launched in 2019 to educate farmers on the basic tenets of 4R Nutrient Stewardship. The site provides background on the 4Rs, as well as case studies from real farmers who have implemented the 4Rs on their farms. Since cost is a major factor when farmers consider whether to use 4R practices, each case study includes data on how much basic, intermediate, and advanced implementation cost.

The Nutrients for Life Foundation was established in 2004 to provide science-based information on the valuable role fertilizers play in feeding our growing world.

By developing and introducing a relevant curriculum into our nation’s schools, the foundation aims to increase an understanding of how responsible fertilizer use improves the health of our soil, the plants that grow in it and, ultimately, the foods we eat.

In addition to its U.S. operations, Nutrients for Life has international chapters in Canada, Colombia and Mexico.

The Micronutrient Manufacturers Association (MMA) was formed to improve business conditions for micronutrient manufacturers and formulators of products that provide essential micronutrients needed for plant growth, through research, education and advocacy on behalf of the industry.

In November 2018, TFI enter into a partnership with MMA. Under the partnership agreement, members of the MMA will become TFI members effective January 1, 2019. The MMA will continue to operate as a committee within TFI with regularly scheduled meetings.
