Greening the Fertilizer Industry

March 21, 2023

Via Zoom

Global conflicts, broken supply chains, climate action, and many other factors have created the perfect storm to push the agriculture sector to think about the future of the fertilizers we use to grow food, feed, fiber, and fuel. Can we make enough fertilizer here in the U.S. to supply our farms? Can we make it using less energy and other dwindling natural resources? This Forum examined where we stand today with fertilizer production and usage, and where we might go to create more sustainable and environmentally friendly fertilizer products in the future.

This Forum took place via Zoom on Tuesday, March 21, at 9 a.m. CT.
