About the U.S. Fertilizer Market

Our industry is essential to ensuring that farmers receive the nutrients they need to enrich the soil and, in turn, grow the crops that feed our nation and the world. Fertilizer is a key ingredient in feeding a growing global population, which is expected to surpass 9.5 billion people by 2050. Half of all food grown around the world today is made possible through the use of fertilizer, hence its importance to farmers and food production.

The fertilizer industry in the United States is comprised of producers, importers, wholesalers, and retailers who serve America’s farmers. The fertilizer sector supports 487,000 American jobs with annual wages in excess of $34 billion.
