Industry publications are reviewed to keep fertilizer capacity information current and to maintain the most up-to-date knowledge of the industry.
In addition, the group prepares statistical reports for The Fertilizer Institute (TFI) about the North American fertilizer industry. These reports involve collecting statistical data, verifying data and summarizing/preparing various reports. Due to market sensitivity, IFDC is diligent in keeping all data confidential.
The annual North America Capacity Survey is also conducted by IFDC to support the TFI Fertilizer Record project and to update IFDC capacity files. This survey includes basic producers in the United States and Canada that participate in the Fertilizer Record as well as producers in Mexico and the Caribbean. It provides updates on existing and planned plant production capacities throughout the region.
