Edito of the President

Dear interested persons,

At the moment Agriculture is facing enormous challenges. The cost of crop inputs and energy continue to rise, this is happening against a backdrop of falling output prices. It has never been more important to match the particular fertilizer programme with the nutritional needs of the target crop. This makes perfect sense not only from an Economic point of view but also helps to protect our Environment.

We, at the European Fertilizer Blenders Association (EFBA), continue to play our part in bringing to the market the tools to develop the most efficient fertilizing programmes. Blended fertilizers are a key to matching the fertilizer application with the nutrient requirements of the particular plant. EFBA are providing the tools to develop such programmes.

I would like to thank my colleagues, who elected me President of EFBA and I look forward to their continued support in the development of our organization.

Dr. Jörg-Ulrich Drews
