Harold Reetz, Foundation for Agronomic Research and International Plant Nutrition Institute
CTIC Member since 1983We have always looked at CTIC as an important link to agribusinesses outside the fertilizer industry, and to the government agencies and NGOs who participate in CTIC.
I believe one of the greatest benefits of our CTIC membership is that the Board meetings and other activities provide a neutral, non-threatening forum for diverse interests to meet and share ideas and concerns. It has provided me and the Foundation for Agronomic Research and the International Plant Nutrition Institute a link to some groups and companies that we would otherwise probably not interact with.
CTIC involvement has also been very helpful to us in getting acquainted with the leadership in NRCS, U.S. EPA and other agencies, and has offered us a chance for us to get our message to them, again, on neutral ground.
