Welcome to The Fertiliser Association of New Zealand

The Fertiliser Association promotes and encourages responsible and scientifically-based nutrient management.

Managing nutrients well is in all our interests, both for economic benefit and environmental management.

To promote best management practices, The Fertiliser Association develops training programmes, funds research, participates in government and local body working groups, and works closely with other organisations in the agricultural sector.

Founded over 60 years ago, The Fertiliser Association (formerly the New Zealand Fertiliser Manufacturers' Research Association) is an industry association funded by member companies to address issues of common public good. Ballance Agri-Nutrients and Ravensdown Fertiliser Co-operative are the current members, which manufacture, distribute and market around 98% of all fertilisers sold in New Zealand.
