Dr. Fabio Vale is Coordinator for IPI activities in Latin America. Dr. Vale is based in Brazil and is a consultant in fertilizer markets. He is also an agronomist with experience in product and technology development, and fertilizer recommendations and applications for several crops, including coffee, cotton, maize, soybean and sugarcane. In 2001, Dr. Vale completed a PhD in Soil and Plant Nutrition from São Paulo University, College of Agriculture (ESALQ), Piracicaba, Brazil, where his studies focused on “Assessment of the Availability of Micronutrients in Fertilizers". The end result of his research was the submission of suggestions to modify methods of fertilizer micronutrient analysis; in 2007, his recommendations were adopted by the Brazilian Ministry of Agriculture. Dr. Vale also received an MBA in Agribusiness from Sao Paulo University in 2012. 

Over his career, Dr. Vale has built excellent relationships with leading researchers at universities and research institutions involved in soil fertility and plant nutrition. Dr. Vale has also published over 30 scientific papers in journals, congresses and symposia focused on soil fertility, plant nutrition and fertilizer use.

Dr. Vale’s expertise will be invaluable in the coordination of IPI’s projects and extension programs in Latin America.
