Assessment of Fertilizer Distribution Systems and Blends
The Assessment of Fertilizer Distribution Systems and Opportunities for Developing Fertilizer Blends was conducted in AGRA’s 11 countries (Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Malawi, Mali, Mozambique, Nigeria, Rwanda, Tanzania and Uganda) to identify the gaps, the readiness and investments to be done to increase the availability and use of multi-nutrient balanced fertilizer blends and strengthen the fertilizer distribution systems.
The white papers provide information on various topics such as State Capability, Seed Production and Distribution, as well as Soil Health. The information is intended for use by AGRA’s partners, governments and other stakeholders on state capability, adoption of tested models, and for decision-making.
