Fertiliser Quality Council
Set up by farmers for farmers, the FQC was formed in 1992 initially to provide an assurance programme for the use of quality fertiliser products. Later, its role was extended to include accurate, ‘on-target’ fertiliser distribution.
Incorporated in 2001, the FQC comprises over 30 executives from across the agricultural spectrum. The Council meets twice a year to review activity, approve budgets and expenditure and discuss pertinent topics affecting the fertiliser and fertiliser spreading industries – aerial and ground.
The Council is responsible for both the Fertmark and Spreadmark initiatives.
