On October 13th, ICL Specialty Fertilizers joins many other fertilizer producers to celebrate Global Fertilizer Day. On this day, we help raise awareness for fertilizers as one of the most important inventions of our time. Half of the food grown around the world today, for both people and animals, is made possible through the use of fertilizers. And their role will only become more important in the next decades.
In the 1960s, one hectare of land fed two people. By 2025, that same hectare will need to feed five people, as a result of an increased population and the loss of arable land to globalization and industrialization. Thanks to advances in fertilizer technology, today’s crops receive more effective and efficient nutrition, and can thrive even in areas of poor soil.
At ICL Specialty Fertilizers we are proud that our fertilizers contribute to a sustainable future of global food production.
