The Southeast Asia Program of IPNI (IPNI SEAP) has a long-standing record of integrity in agronomic research and training programs since its beginning as a representative office of the International Potash Institute in 1974. The Southeast Asia representative office first operated as a joint mission of The Potash & Phosphate Institute/Potash & Phosphate Institute of Canada (PPI/PPIC) and the International Potash Institute (IPI) before it became a program of the new IPNI in 2007. The Southeast Asian countries with which IPNI has had, is having or may have research and development engagements include Myanmar, Thailand, Malaysia, Lao PDR, Cambodia, Vietnam, Philippines, Indonesia, East Timor and Papua New Guinea. The region has a total population of greater than 600 million, of which Indonesia alone has about 250 million inhabitants. Over the past decade, there has been substantial rural to urban migration; however, the rural population is still greater than the urban population in most of the region and agriculture continues to be an important feature of the economies of all countries in the region. IPNI SEAP is well-positioned in the region, through collaborative projects with the industry, and other research and development organizations, to develop and disseminate management approaches to increase productivity based on the 4R Nutrient Stewardship Concept. Such collaborative projects include research in field experiments, production of books, publications and dissemination materials, research for fertilizer market development, as well as software development. Through these projects, we generate essential information for growers that helps them to achieve increased profitability, food security and environmental sustainability through appropriate use of plant nutrients and other management practices, in response to the socio-economic changes in the region.
