Coordination: India

The main aim of IPI activity in India is to promote "Balanced Nutrition" with emphasis on K nutrition in the main crops. This mission is carried out via research and extension activities: field experiments, demonstration plots, farmers meetings, dealers training programs, field days, workshops and conferences, publications and awards and assistance for researchers.

Ms. Anat Cohen IPI Coordinator: Ms. Anat Cohen

Ms. Anat Cohen, IPI Coordinator for India, has over 23 years' experience working with farmers, dealers, extension workers, and researchers working on crop fertilization and plant nutrition. Her international experience includes agricultural research and extension programs and consultancies worldwide, especially in Israel, East Africa and India.

Ms. Cohen gained her BSc degree in agronomy in the field of soil and water sciences from the Faculty of Agriculture, Food and Environmental Quality Sciences at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in Israel.

Ms. Cohen has comprehensive knowledge of a wide range of crops grown in Israel and elsewhere, including vegetables, field crops, banana, pomegranate, grapes, deciduous trees, coffee, citrus, avocado, mango, persimmon, potato, and groundnuts. As a field agronomist in Israel, she developed and implemented regular protocols in fertilization and plant nutrition for farmers for a variety crops. In India, Ms. Cohen worked for over 15 years on numerous field projects related to specialty fertilizers for a range of crops.

Ms. Cohen’s expertise will be invaluable in the coordination of IPI’s projects and extension programs in India.
