Good soil fertility management ensures that the soil can actually provide the nutrients in sufficient amounts at all times during the growth of plants. Soil fertility in many parts of Africa, however, is declining. Africa?s consumption of fertilizers is the lowest in the world and organic matter that could, to some extent, replace fertility, is often burnt and soils left bare to the degrading effects of the sun and the wind. How can farmers increase their harvests when their soils are poor?
In this radio programme, we are going to point out some of the steps that farmers can follow to manage the soil well so that it always contains a supply of nutrients for their crops. These guidelines will ensure that farmers realise increased harvests on their farms.
