Sirius Minerals’ research and development programme carries out a number of trials in Asia including China, India, Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam.
China is targeting zero growth policy by 2020 in the use of chemical fertilizers to avoid further contamination of its farmland.
Farm consolidation supporting improved fertilizer practices.
Policy enforced changes in agricultural practice, encouraging balanced fertilizer use supporting nutrient use efficiency and increased applications of secondary and micro nutrients.
