Celebrate Global Fertilizer Day on October 13

Compass Minerals is proud to support Global Fertilizer Day on Saturday, Oct. 13.

In its third year, Global Fertilizer Day is celebrated internationally to recognize the critical role fertilizer plays in meeting the growing global demand for nutritious and sustainably grown food. Compass Minerals Plant Nutrition plays a pivotal role in meeting that global demand through innovative, efficient, high-quality plant nutrition products like ProAcqua®, Protassium+® and Wolf Trax™ that improve yield and deliver consistent crop quality. With a focus on research and development and products that deliver on the 4Rs (the right time, the right rate, the right source and the right place), Compass Minerals is helping move the fertilizer industry forward and delivering on our core purpose to help feed the world.

In the U.S., the fertilizer industry employs close to 90,000 people and contributes $155 billion to the economy, while also significantly increasing the amount of food that can be safely grown per acre. According to The Fertilizer Institute (TFI), two out of five people around the world have access to a reliable food supply because of the fertilizer industry. Additionally, agriculture experts estimate that without the use of fertilizers, global food production would decline by 50 percent.

Global Fertilizer Day is supported by key industry organizations such as The Fertilizer Institute (TFI), Fertilizers Europe, Fertilizer Canada, the International Fertilizer Association (IFA) and the International Plant Nutrition Institute (IPNI).
