A key objective is accelerating nutrient use efficiency and effectiveness improvement, which requires faster adoption of innovative approaches and technologies such as digital tools and chemical and biological solutions.
The fertilizer industry is a natural partner for AgTech startups, and vice versa. This has led IFA to create a platform for fertilizer industry leaders, startups, investors, scientists and other stakeholders to speed up progress — IFA SMART & GREEN.
The 2nd edition of the IFA SMART & GREEN Virtual Conference will be held on February 6-8, 2023. The Opening Session will discuss investments in innovation and startups and the market for special products. Subsequent sessions will showcase cutting-edge plant nutrition innovations across the plant nutrient value chain - from low-carbon, decentralized fertilizer production to novel fertilizer products, manipulation of the microbiome, digital crop nutrition solutions and nutrient recovery and recycling.
IFA invites startups to participate and present their innovative approaches. Roundtable discussions during the event will focus on concrete action.
