Monday was National Farmer’s Day, and Tuesday, October 13, is Global Fertilizer Day, as proclaimed by The Fertilizer Institute. TFI describes the day as an annual event seeking to educate people about the fertilizer industry and its contribution to feeding the global population.
TFI President and CEO Corey Rosenbusch said, “We feed the world, we do it sustainably, and we are proud of the women and men working in our industry to make it all happen.”
In years past, facilities have opened their doors to local school students, elected officials and the public for facility tours and presentations. With the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 celebrations have gone mostly virtual. TFI and the Nutrients for Life Foundation are jointly hosting a virtual learning events Tuesday focused on workforce development by highlighting available career pathways in the fertilizer industry.
TFI is also helping the industry spread the word through social media channels. Learn more about the effort online visit the TFI’s Website.
