Fluid Research

The Fluid Fertilizer Foundation is the only organization with a mandate for fluid research. We have invested over $3 million in research projects selected by industry personnel. We pool our resources to do collectively what can’t be done individually.

Our research has helped improve traditional fertility programs and is evidenced by an increase in fluid fertilizer consumption from 13 million tons in 1982 to over 20 million tons today – while producing a ripple effect on research at universities around the world, including U.S., Canada, Mexico, and Australia.
