Climate change is pushing our food and farming systems to their limits. By 2050, 9.7 billion mouths must be fed, while rising temperatures and more frequent extreme weather events threaten crop production worldwide. This free webinar will showcase concrete solutions to climate change adaptation and mitigation that the fertilizer industry and its partners are investing in, to help farmers become “climate-smart” and reduce global greenhouse gas emissions. The International Fertilizer Association (IFA), International Plant Nutrition Institute (IPNI) and the International Fertilizer Development Center (IFDC) will bring together leading experts in soil health and management from across the globe to discuss the latest innovations in their region that are already contributing to the global response to food insecurity and climate change.
- Scott Angle, CEO and President, International Fertilizer Development Centre
- Robert Norton, Regional Director for Australia and New Zealand, International Plant Nutrition Institute
- Shamie Zingore, Director, Sub-Saharan Africa Programme, International Plant Nutrition Institute
- Heitor Cantarella, Director, Soil and Environment Resource Centre at the Agronomic Institute of Campinas and winner of IFA 2017 Norman Borlaug Award.
Join the panel of experts to explore the following issues:
- How can farmers build resilience to unpredictable weather patterns through fertilizer best management practices?
- Which innovative fertilizer solutions are successfully helping farmers adapt to climate change in Australasia?
- How can farmers in sub-Saharan Africa access accurate fertilizer recommendations?
- What are the latest solutions for reducing greenhouse gas emissions from fertilizers in the tropics?
