Center for Fertilization and Plant Nutrition (CFPN) is the new research center for fertilizer and plant nutrition knowledge. The Center was established under a cooperation agreement between the Israeli Agricultural Research Organization (ARO; Volcani Center) and ICL.

Located in the Negev, Israel, the new center investigates and develops advanced methods in fertilization and plant nutrition. The need for more and better food requires this knowledge now more than ever. Especially in light of growing world population, decreasing agricultural land and the urgent need for better environmental stewardship worldwide.

CFPN operates at the ARO Gilat Research Center in the Negev, with research conducted by ARO scientists in partnership with colleagues from other research institutions.

The Center conducts research projects on various essential issues, carrying out field tests, efficacy screening and validation of various technologies and products.
