Fertilize 4 Life

Fertilize 4 Life is a multi-national scientific collaboration between University of Florida, Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences (UF|IFAS), the Brazilian Agricultural Research Corporation (EMBRAPA), USDA Agricultural Research Service (ARS), the International Fertilizer Development Center (IFDC), and the USDA Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS) to stimulate collaboration and research between the USA and Brazil for efficient and effective fertilizer use. The partners have organized themselves into four topical research groups that align with, and leverage, existing research. 

The outcomes of this collaboration will increase fertilizer-use efficiency, reduce dependency on imports, mitigate the amount of greenhouse gas emissions from agriculture, and provide lasting solutions to advance sustainable agricultural systems in Brazil, the United States, and worldwide.
