IFA is leading a campaign to achieve the abolition of EU fertiliser import tariffs, which put EU farmers at a huge disadvantage to their competitors.

Removal of tariffs would mean….

Making the case

A report commissioned by the IFA and carried out by the International Food and Policy Research Institute (IFPRI)  shows the elimination of duties and tariffs will deliver a significant boost to farm incomes, job creation and rural regeneration.

Seeking support

IFA has written to the Agriculture Ministers in each of the 28 EU Member States calling for their support for IFA’s campaign to eliminate custom duties on fertiliser. Letters in each Member State languages can be adapted for you to send to support the campaign.
