Quotation marks "The 2017 Africa Fertilizer Conference in Cape Town was another remarkable Argus event. Not only an illustration that the fertilizer sector in Africa is on the move, but also a contribution to the growth of the sector. The meeting provided information needed for strategic marketing decisions and investments, allowed for interactions and business between partners, and made it possible to strategize together on how to accelerate the growth of the industry in Africa. The Argus Africa Fertilizer Conference is a must for all fertilizer industry professionals in Africa." Rob Groot, Director Global Field Programs, IFDC

Quotation marks "The Argus FMB Africa Fertilizer conference brings together major industry players to discuss and understand how the African context requires flexibility and investment to build the market and bring high-quality fertilizer to end users. This year, we discussed barriers to accessing markets and aggregation services, affordability at the agro-dealer level, and ways to innovate delivery systems and financing to ensure farmers receive a holistic service from their agricultural input suppliers. For One Acre Fund, this conference is a great way to build industry connections and strengthen existing relationships to support our continued efforts bringing high-quality fertilizers to smallholder farmers on credit at affordable prices. Thank you to the Argus team for putting on such a great event! Julia Franklin, One Acre Fund
