Banner of Global Fertilizer Day

Wednesday,October 13, 2021 CAAR encourages members to celebrate Global Fertilizer Day. Fertilizer significantly increases the amount of food that can be safely grown per acre and experts say this allows two out of five people around the world to have access to a reliable food supply.

According to Fertilizer Canada, Global Fertilizer Day marks the anniversary of Fritz Haber’s discovery (Haber-Bosch process) of ammonia synthesis in 1908, which sowed the seeds for the Green Revolution of the early 20th century. During this time, widespread adoption of agricultural technologies lifted millions out of poverty and famine, allowing our world to grow and develop.

In 1960, one hectare of land fed two people. In 2025, one hectare of land will need to feed five.
