Safer Phosphates™ has been created to promote the use of purer phosphates, limiting the risks of heavy metals in our soils, water and food, thereby reducing associated health threats.
Our aim is to improve access to information that supports good decision-making about fertilizer use, environmental protection, food security and health.
