4. BUILDING AND SHARING KNOWLEDGE 360°
Building and sharing knowledge with numerous stakeholders helps to generate new ideas that contribute to sustainable growth, an improved portfolio of products and services and, more generally, the establishment of solid alliances for future development. We collaborate closely with the Francisco Josephinum, an agricultural school and research institution in Wieselburg, Austria. In addition to our joint research efforts in the areas of precision agriculture and technology development, we carry out field trials for granular and speciality fertilizers and support the initiatives of various third-party organizations, such as Fertilizer Europe. We are also a founding member of the Cool Farm Tool Alliance, which developed the Cool Farm Tool, an online greenhouse gas, water and biodiversity calculator for farming. This free-of-charge and user-friendly calculator helps farmers measure the carbon footprint of their crop and livestock products and assess the environmental impact on water and biodiversity.
