IFDC is an international organization addressing critical issues such as international food security, the alleviation of global hunger and poverty, environmental protection, and the promotion of economic development and self-sufficiency. IFDC focuses on increasing productivity across the agricultural value chain in developing countries by creating and transferring effective and environmentally sound crop nutrient technology and agribusiness expertise. IFDC works closely with farmers, agri-input dealers and output traders, the private sector, local organizations and developing country institutions to achieve sustainable impacts that last long after projects end. IFDC has contributed to the development of institutional capacity building in 150 countries through more than 700 formal training programs, primarily as part of IFDC’s long-term agricultural development projects. Field demonstrations and training have assisted hundreds of thousands of farmers in developing countries.
