The African continent is home to more than one billion people. With current population growth rates, Africa will need to accommodate more than two billion by 2050.

However, food production in sub-Saharan Africa is significantly lower than other parts of the world: less than 150 kg of grain per capita are produced in the region each year compared to more than 300 kg of grain per capita in other parts of the world. If a growing population is to be fed, this worrying level of agricultural productivity must change rapidly. One of the immediate tools to stimulate improved yields and crop quality is balanced use of fertilizers.

This Technical Manual on Potash Fertilizer Use for Soil Fertility Experts and Development Agents provides concise and accurate information on potash fertilization to enable effective and responsible knowledge transfer to Ethiopian farmers. IPI is honored to have the opportunity work with its Ethiopian partners in achieving this worthwhile mission.
