Washington - Ford B. West was a legend in the fertilizer industry, having spent over 35 years promoting, defending, and truly living in the industry. The Ford B. West Future Leaders program has been created to highlight Ford's love of the industry, the people working in the industry and his friendly demeanor to all he met. West passed away on Feb. 14 following a 15-year medical adventure with prostate cancer. During his career at The Fertilizer Institute (TFI), Ford worked in membership, government affairs and policy and as the President.

TFI is asking industry members to step forward to make a gift to support this effort and honor this amazing leader. The goal of the campaign is $500,000, and it will run through June 2022. Every donation helps achieve the goal to lift up young leaders and support programs of a similar nature as they develop over time.

"Ford was passionate about the fertilizer industry, and he was passionate about young people and networking," said TFI President and CEO Corey Rosenbusch. "This program will help lift young leaders and give them the connections and tools to further their careers for the betterment of the entire fertilizer industry."

Donations can be made at online at the Nutrients for Life Foundation website or by sending checks to the Ford West Memorial Fund at 4201 Wilson Blvd., Suite 700, Arlington, VA 22203. TFI thanks you for honoring Ford B. West and his tireless work for the fertilizer industry.
