Fertiliser Campaign

[rev_slider GenElec]

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….

Gain to the EU agriculture sector


Reduction in fertiliser costs


Net gain to the EU


Jobs created

Latest campaign actions

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.

Latest campaign news

IFA Inputs Project Team Chairman John Coughlan has said that recent nitrogen products price increases announced by Yara for September and October are totally unjustified, clearly demonstrating their market power as Europe’s leading nitrogen manufacturer.

IFA President Joe Healy has welcomed the publication by the EU Commission of a “Notice of initiation of a partial interim review of the anti-dumping measures applicable to imports of ammonium nitrate originating in Russia”.

IFA Inputs Project Team Chairman John Coughlan has warned farmers to shop around before purchasing fertiliser as wholesale CAN prices have fallen by over €30/t in recent weeks and this should be reflected in farm gate prices over the coming days.
