The International Fertiliser Society (IFS) will hold its Annual Technical Meeting and AGM at the Royal Geological Society in London on the 23rd and 24th July.
As a renowned learned society it focuses upon advances in the global production and application of fertilisers with the emphasis in this meeting being on nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P).
In addition the IFS has awarded the 29th Francis New Memorial Medal to Dr Amit Roy of the International Fertiliser Development Council (IFDC) based in the USA who will give a paper entitled “Global fertiliser transitioning from volume to value“.
“Amit’s paper will focus upon the new generation of fertilisers which are much more efficient in providing nutrients to crops with lower carbon foot-print and environmental impact” says Dr Kevin Moran of Kemnovation who is a Past President of the IFS between 2010 to 2011.
He adds that “these will bring higher crop productivity per hectare of land leading to a guiding principle of Kemnovation of ‘more for less’ in future”.
“Furthermore Dr Roy has a long-standing involvement in promoting micronutrient use in fertiliser programmes to improve both crop yields and human health through crop bio-fortification”.
You can read more about micronutrient bio-fortification on the Kemnovation web-site section entitled ‘The Next Green Revolution’ to provide both food and nutrition security for a growing planet.
