The International Fertilizer Industry Association (IFA) represents the global fertiliser industry, with some 540 members in around 85 countries.

IFA member companies represent all activities related to the production, trade, transport and distribution of every type of fertiliser, their raw materials and intermediates. Almost half of the Association's membership is based in developing countries.

IFA's membership also includes organizations involved in construction, engineering, consulting, agronomic research and training.

The Association states that its mission is to "act as the voice and the ear of the global fertilizer industry, which provides the crop nutrients that allow farmers everywhere to meet the world's growing food, feed, fibre and bioenergy needs in a sustainable manner."

IFA achieves this by:

  • actively promoting the efficient and responsible production and use of plant nutrients to maintain and increase agricultural production worldwide in a sustainable manner
  • contributing to the formation of public policy relevant to crop nutrition and soil fertility management
  • improving the operating environment of the fertiliser industry in the spirit of free enterprise and fair trade
  • collecting, compiling and disseminating statistics and other information relevant to the fertiliser industry; and
  • providing a platform for the discussion of all aspects of the production, distribution and consumption of fertilisers, their intermediates and raw materials.

In addition, IFA recognises that crop nutrition is only one element of sustainable agriculture and rural development, and as a result the Association and its members seek to "work with other stakeholders throughout the agricultural value chain to identify and implement holistic, integrated ways to meet the world's food, feed, fibre and bioenergy needs."
