Mosaic Partners with IPNI to Educate Farmers in Mexico

March 12, 2012   |   ShareThis

During a recent meeting in Chihuahua, Mexico — the largest state in Mexico, with some of the highest corn yields — The Mosaic Company and International Plant Nutrition Institute (IPNI) spent three days educating and training farmers about the 4Rs of nutrient stewardship: right rate, right source, right place and right time.

The conferences were hosted by Mosaic and ISAOSA, a large fertilizer importing and distribution company in Mexico. ISAOSA invited corn and cotton farmers that were interested in learning more about crop nutrition, specifically Mosaic’s premium products K-Mag® and MicroEssentials®. Messages to the farmers included discussion on the United States’ approach to corn and cotton production, specifically focusing on the 4Rs, high-yield agriculture, and how the two management philosophies fit together and can be adapted for Mexican production systems.
Mosaic and IPNI will team up once again, this time in Guadalajara, Mexico, at the end of March to introduce corn farmers to updated technologies, methods and products. The goal is to create strong relationships with farmers who appreciate the transfer of knowledge focused on improved yields and profits.

Mosaic and IPNI have a relationship stemming more than 30 years, originating with Mosaic’s legacy companies. IPNI is a nonprofit, science-based organization dedicated to the responsible management of plant nutrition for the benefit of the human family. IPNI currently has active programs in more than 38 countries.
