The FFF is a non-proﬁt organization committed to researching and providing information about ﬂuid fertilizer technology. Since its formation, the FFF has funded over $3 million in ﬂuid fertilizer research. We have accumulated thousands of pages of research data. The main goal of the Fluid Journal is to transfer this technical information into easy to read form to farmers and dealers so they may be better informed as to the technological advancements that the ﬂuid fertilizer industry has achieved. FOCUS The Fluid Journal is focused on disseminating ﬂuid fertilizer technology to universities, dealers, equipment manufacturers and fertilizer producers. Our editorial matter focuses on several areas: • Evaluate the agronomics of ﬂuid fertilizers in the production of maximum economic crop yields • Evaluate application techniques for ﬂuid fertilizers. • Investigate and inform our readers of innovative uses of ﬂuid fertilizers under varied cultural, pest control and water management practices. • Evaluate the efﬁciencies and conveniences of ﬂuid fertilizer systems. • Evaluate methods of controlling environmental problems with ﬂuids.
