Novartia is also a partner for the supply of raw materials for the fertilizer sector. All plant nutrients, except nitrogen, are ultimately derived from geological resources. In many developed and developing countries, these resources are industrially transformed into fertilizers commonly used in agriculture and horticulture.
Depletion of soil nutrients by crops (“soil mining”) is one of the biophysical factors that most influences food production in many parts of the world. Farmers use various nutrient inputs, including fertilizers and manure, to reverse this trend and increase soil productivity, food production, and food security.
Novartia is dedicated to supplying raw materials to produce fertilizers with three macronutrients (nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium), and with sulphur – a secondary soil nutrient. The company works with the best ecological, healthy products of organic and inorganic origin.
