Imagine a world without fertilizer

Oslo, October 13, 2016
On the first-ever global fertilizer day, we asked some of our colleagues what a world without mineral fertilizer might look like. Watch this two-minute video to see their responses.

Today, the International Fertilizer Association (IFA) is celebrating global fertilizer day for the first time.

We agree with the IFA that mineral fertilizer is one of the most important inventions of our time. It has potentially saved billions of people from famine and will feed the world for decades to come.

Imagine a world without mineral fertilizer, what would it look like?
