IFDC, established in the USA in October 1974, is known for its expertise in soil fertility management, fertilizers and agriculture and agribusiness that service developing countries. In 1977 under the United States of America’s Presidential Executive Order No. 11977 of March 14, IFDC was declared as a public international organization (PIO).
Since 1974, IFDC has focused on increasing and sustaining food security and agricultural productivity in over 100 developing countries through the development and transfer of effective, environmentally sound and climate smarcrop nutrient technologies and agribusiness expertise. IFDC has been working with the Government of Bangladesh (GOB) since 1977 for the uplifting of the rural farmers and the country’s agricultural economy through adoption of climate smart technology such as fertilizer deep placement (FDP).
