Developing enhanced efficiency and speciality fertilizers to maximise crop yields and business growth 

The first Argus Added Value Fertilizers Europe took place on 12-14 February in Madrid, Spain. Over 150 delegates from 81 companies attended the event to network and learn.

The added value fertilizers market is growing rapidly in Europe - the conference was dedicated to specific crops, products and people in the European market and offered a balance of technical and scientific content alongside access to commercial and business opportunities in this region. 

This event covered all kinds of enhanced efficiency and specialty products, including water solubles, slow and controlled release, foliars, micronutrients, biostimulants – in short, any product which has an added component to increase its efficacy compared to ‘straight’ fertilizers.
