Attend the Argus event - NPK Fertilizers Vietnam 2017

Shining the world's spotlight on Vietnam

Vietnam’s large-scale demand for NPK is consistently around 4mn t/yr, according to the Argus World NPK Outlook to 2031. As a large agricultural producer and rapidly growing demand market, Vietnam can offer international and domestic fertilizer companies exciting long-term growth. But setting up meetings with decision-makers can be a difficult task, particularly when you are unfamiliar with the people, industries and companies in a new market.

We understand the importance of building relationships in this industry and this conference is returning to Vietnam for a second year to offer you the opportunity to do just that. The Argus NPK Fertilizers Vietnam 2017 programme has been designed to include refreshing new topics, unparalleled networking opportunities and an esteemed line-up of speakers.

Discussion topics for 2017

  • An overview of specialty fertilizers in the region
  • Fertilizer supply in relation to nutrient demand in southeast Asian agriculture
  • Understanding what it takes to enter Vietnam’s fertilizer market 
  • A key focus on the Myanmar market: The role of fertilizer policies in transforming agriculture and fertilizer formulations in the country
  • An overview of agronomic needs in Vietnam – key crops and their requirements
  • Best nutrient management practices for pepper – understanding soil conditions in the region
  • Enhanced-efficiency NPK – from basics to advanced technologies
  • Addressing Mg deficiency in Vietnamese soil 

Argus NPK Fertilizers Vietnam 2017 covers both the economics and technology driving Vietnam’s NPK fertilizers market, offering you ample opportunities to explore the potential of commercial collaboration.

  Simultaneous translation (Vietnamese-English) will be provided.
