Europe

Fertilizers Europe represents the major fertilizer manufacturers in Europe and promotes the important role of fertilizers in European agriculture and monitors upcoming agricultural or environmental issues for the fertilizer industry.

Directly Available Nitrogen (DAN) fertilizers offer farmers and agronomists a precise and reliable means of increasing food and energy production in an environmentally acceptable way. DAN fertilizers, based on nitrate and ammonium, combine the benefits of the two simplest forms of reactive nitrogen that are directly available to plants. Fertilizers Europe believes the focus of European agricultural policy should be on improving the performance of the agricultural sector in terms of its productivity and efficiency. This will enable European farmers to increase Europe’s self-sufficiency and its contribution to global food needs, as well as lead to more sustainable agricultural production. The sustainable intensification of European agriculture through the efficient use of mineral fertilizers can help the sector respond to the main EU policy goals.
