IFDC Launches Virtual Fertilizer Research Center

gs and shortages,” according to Dr. Amit H. Roy, IFDC president and CEO. “The crises have temporarily abated – largely due to the global recession. However, since the underlying causes remain, it is likely that these problems will re-emerge with economic recovery. Because of these crises, new and innovative research is needed to help feed the world. The time has come for developing practices and technologies to improve the use of land and labor resources, reduce emissions into the air and water and conserve natural resources.”

Roy continued, “These are global issues and they require global solutions. Therefore, IFDC is creating the VFRC as the most rapid, economical way to tap the world’s intellectual capacity to generate this critically needed fertilizer research.” Roy added, “The Center will partner with universities, public and private research laboratories and the global fertilizer and agribusiness industries to bring together the best scientific, business and government minds to create a research system producing more food with fewer wasted resources and a reduced environmental impact.”

With the population, economic and environmental issues facing it, the world cannot afford the current level of inefficiency in fertilizer production and use. It is estimated that 50 percent of the food consumed worldwide results directly from the use of (or benefits of) nitrogen fertilizer. Yet, only about one-third of the nitrogen fertilizer applied to crops in developing countries is utilized due to inefficiency in application methods and the inherent properties of current fertilizer products. The financial cost and waste burden farmers who pay for three times as much nutrient as their crops absorb. But that does not account for the total financial cost or waste. The “wasted” fertilizer does not disappear but often becomes an environmental pollutant, either in the form of potent greenhouse ga
