Ma’aden emphasises importance of fertilizer industry at IFA conference

Held from 22nd—24th May under the theme ‘Where Food and Energy Markets Meet,’ the conference brought together stakeholders from across the global agriculture value chain to address issues and challenges facing the industry, as well as the impact of the fertilizer sector on other global industries.

Robert Wilt, CEO of Ma’aden and IFA Board Member, said: “Food security depends on the fertilizer industry’s ability to meet the needs of a growing population, but we need to work together to increase efficiency of fertilizer production, while reducing the amount of energy used. Ma’aden’s ongoing focus on forming working partnerships in the agricultural value chain is key to helping us build a sustainable future for agriculture around the world.

“That’s why we work with our partners to devise techniques and systems to enhance crop inputs used through field campaigns and R&D programmes. We are investing heavily into building a resilient fertilizer business, with plans to grow our production and increase supply to key regions, which means we are playing a growing role in food security in these regions.”
