PhosAgro CEO Mikhail Rybnikov said: “The AFA’s goal of coordinating efforts to provide farmers around the world with nutrients, to make food systems more sustainable and to eliminate hunger is in line with our mission.

“Participation in the Association’s committees and working groups will enable PhosAgro experts to discuss the international agenda concerning the sustainable use of fertilizers and food security, while also facilitating the exchange of best practices among industry leaders.”
