Since the end of 2021 and so far in 2022, the world faces a shortage of fertilizers, driven by a rise in prices. In addition, fertilizers have ceased to be available on the market, as numerous production plants, which faced negative margins, stopped production, among other factors, due to the increase in the price of energy. Consequently, the reduction of fertilizer applications is expected to decrease the yield and quality of food production.
The fertilizer crisis presents a unique opportunity to scale up alternative sustainable fertilization management practices that enable soil recarbonization, giving a promising approach not only to improve soil health, increase food security and agricultural incomes, but also to mitigate climate change (FAO, 2019).
The event is jointly organized by the FAO Regional Office for Latin America and the Caribbean, the Latin American Soil Alliance (ASLAC), Catholic Relief Services (CRS) and the Argentine Association of Producers in Direct Seeding (Aapresid).
