About Us

IFDC is an independent non-profit organization that combines innovative research, market systems development, and strategic partnerships to spread sustainable agricultural solutions for improved soil health, food security, and livelihoods around the world.


Healthier soils and plants for a food-secure and environmentally sustainable world.


Bring together innovative research, market expertise, and strategic public and private sector partners to identify and scale sustainable solutions for soil and plant nutrition that benefit farmers, entrepreneurs, and the environment.

Over the coming decades, global population growth will drive a substantial increase in food demand. By 2050, our world will need to feed almost 10 billion people, 2.3 billion more than today. Global hunger is now beginning to tick upward again after a decade of progress.

As food demands rise, global agricultural systems are facing accelerating risks due to climate change and increasingly limited land and water resources. These pressures, together with rapid urbanization, rising incomes, and changes in consumer preferences, will require fundamental changes in agricultural systems to nourish a growing population while reducing agriculture’s environmental impact.
