Myanmar’s agriculture has enormous potential given its abundant resources and excellent market positioning. But its fertilizer market is underdeveloped, with low utilization rates. Argus has chosen Myanmar as the venue for the 2018 instalment of the event and aims to initiate an industry-wide dialogue on how to best develop the market, from raising awareness to improving infrastructure and achieving more efficient use of fertilizer.

The Argus NPK Fertilizers Myanmar 2018 program will include presentations by international speakers and representatives from the local fertilizer community. With numerous networking opportunities available during the conference, delegates can leverage these face-to-face meetings to build long-term relationships.
