Argus Africa Fertilizer Live - Virtual Conference

The Argus Africa Fertilizer Awards

Celebrating achievement in the fertilizer sector

During a challenging year, the African fertilizer market has proven to be resilient and responded to the global pandemic in a way that has helped to minimise the impact on the supply chain and access to fertilizers.

Alongside the Africa Fertilizer Live virtual conference Argus are delighted to launch the first Africa Fertilizer Awards to recognise outstanding achievements and contributions to the sector and the people that work in it.
