Our Mission

Nutrients for Life Foundation’s aim is to educate about the importance of responsible fertilizer use in growing healthy crops, increasing food production and feeding a growing population.

Learn about our history


The Nutrients for Life Foundation is a global organization consisting of members and collaborative partners that develops and distributes science-based materials to improve plant nutrient literacy, soil health knowledge and promotes fertilizer’s role in sustaining a growing population. Plant nutrients, especially nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium, are also required to keep our parks, gardens, playgrounds, sports fields and golf courses green and healthy in communities from coast to coast.

All information developed by our Foundation is science-based and supported by internationally accredited agronomists. Our supplemental educational materials are based on our curriculum which has been reviewed by the Smithsonian Institution, the world’s largest museum complex and research organization.
