World in Progress: From fertilizers to food security

February 9, 2022

Fertilizers are getting more expensive and are pushing food prices up. And the millions of smallholder farmers who produce a third of the world's food will have little choice but to reduce using fertilizer which in turn will reduce their crop yield. DW speaks to Dr. Michael Brüntrup, senior researcher with the German Development Institute.


Dr. Michael Brüntrup has been focusing on food security, agricultural policy, supply chains and rural development.
