IPI Members and Board

IPI is a non-governmental and non-profit organisation based in Zug, Switzerland. Founded in 1952 by German and French potash producers, it is now supported by producers in Europe and the Near East.

IPI carries out the major part of its work through a network of Coordinators, that work closely with researchers, government offices, extension and agribusiness.

IPI's mission is to develop and promote balanced fertilization for the production of higher yields and more nutritious food, together with ensuring sustainability of production through conservation of soil fertility for future generations.
