World renowned soil scientist emphasises crucial role of plant nutrients for soil health at IFA 2015 Annual Conference


IFA Press Release: Istanbul, Turkey, 25 May 2015 – To commemorate the International Year of Soils, world renowned soil scientist, Dr Pedro Sanchez, the 2002 World Food Prize Laureate and Director of Agriculture and Food Security Center at The Earth Institute at Columbia University gave a commemorative lecture titled Fertilizers and Soil Health - Debunking the Myths, at IFA’s 83rd Annual Conference held in Istanbul on 25-27 May.

The lecture was introduced by IFA President Ms Esin Mete who highlighted the importance of the International Year of Soils saying that “this often overlooked resource is vital to food security and economic development and IFA and its members aim to conserve, sustainably manage and rehabilitate degraded land by promoting the adequate use of soil nutrients.”

Dr Sanchez highlighted the importance of soil health as “the continued capacity of the soil to function as a vital living ecosystem, that sustains plants, animals and humans.” The lecture went on to debunk what he referred to as “myths about fertilizers and soil health,” which are simply not true.

“The claim that fertilizers poison the soil is false,” Sanchez explained, as long as they are applied at agronomically correct rates,” highlighted Sanchez.

Another myth dispelled by Sanchez was that organic fertilizers provide better plant nutrition.
