1st Summit of the Organic Fertiliser and organo-mineral fertilising materials Industry in Europe (SOFIE)

5 Jun 2019 - 6 Jun 2019

Adjoining the Society’s 2019 Technical Conference, SOFIE will also be at Les Ataliers des Tanneurs, Brussels, starting after lunch on 5 June and running for a full day on 6 June

Organised for the organic* fertilisers industry across Europe by ESPP, in partnership with IFS (International Fertiliser Society), SOFIE will address:

  • The agronomic science behind claims of organic fertilisers concerning nutrients, soil health and environment
  • Industry and market perspectives, including quality, innovation and export opportunities
  • Circular Economy
  • European regulatory challenges, especially the new EU Fertilising Products Regulation (with the European Commission)

This is the first ever European conference for the organic fertilisers industry, and will facilitate networking across Europe of organic fertiliser producers (including composts, digestates, biochars …), organic waste processors / recyclers, fertiliser distributors and experts and advisors to these industries, including applied agronomists, agricultural outreach services, regulators, etc.

* note: "Organic Fertilisers" here refers to nutrient products containing organic carbon, not to organic 'non chemical' farming.

The programme is currently under finalisation - further details are available at . Conference registration is now open, and can be accessed here.
