Abstract

The use of fertilizers impacts the quality of our food, and safety. We interviewed eight high-level managers in the fertilizer industry about the benefits of transparency and traceability. Respondents perceive improvement of product quality due to better root cause analysis. Negative perceptions are related to fears for loss of reputation. Full fertilizer supply chain transparency appears at odds with purchase protection and competitive advantages, and also with social performance outcomes and liability. A solution could be to provide more transparency in the fertilizer supply chain while putting limits on who has access to data and coding of such data.
