TFI Celebrates Ag Day on National Mall
ARLINGTON, VA – The Fertilizer Institute (TFI) is taking part in the National Ag Day Celebration of Modern Agriculture. The celebration, March 21 and 22, is being held on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. and showcases innovations that are enabling modern agriculture to sustainably provide for a growing world. Joining TFI at the event are over 30 agricultural trade associations, equipment manufacturers and grower groups.
“The fertilizer industry is proud of our achievements in worker safety, energy use and environmental stewardship and we welcome the opportunity to educate the community about the critical role we play in sustainably feeding the world,” said TFI President and CEO Corey Rosenbusch.” Each step of the fertilizer supply chain is focused on doing more with fewer resources and with environmental and community impacts in mind.”
Attendees of the public event will learn about the advances that drive American agriculture’s ability to produce more while reducing its climate impact, water runoff and improving farm safety. Earlier this month, TFI released its annual sustainability report, highlighting industry improvement in the key priority areas of workforce safety, energy and the environment, fertilizer use and industry innovation. That report can be found here.
