Fertiliser Association of New Zealand appointments Chief Executive

January 2017

The Fertiliser Association of New Zealand is pleased to announce the appointment of Dr Vera Power to the role of Chief Executive, following the retirement of former Chief Executive, Dr Philip Mladenov, at the end of December.

Dr Power has strong credentials in research relating to phosphorus use in farming systems, and more recently, links to water quality management and environmental protection.

She brings international experience in farm systems through applied research with Teagasc (the Agricultural Research Authority in Ireland), and more recently, government policy experience on both water and climate change with Ministry for the Environment.

The Fertiliser Association was founded over sixty years ago with a vision to advance technology in fertiliser production and use, and to promote and encourage responsible and scientifically-based nutrient management practices.
