WASHINGTON — What will be the impact of limited fertilizer sources for the future of farming? This is the topic of the “Navigating rapidly changing global fertilizer markets to meet nutrient needs of U.S. crop production” symposium for the Communication and Public Engagement for Healthy People and a Healthy Planet ASA, CSSA, SSSA International Annual Meeting in Baltimore, Maryland.
This symposium will review global fertilizer and crop market fundamental drivers, discuss implications for fertilizer economics and pricing, and the impacts of global drivers on local market conditions. Speakers will include industry economists and market specialists, crop commodity representatives, and university soil fertility and nutrient-management specialists.
