Integrated Soil Fertilty Management Training Manual For Zambia’s Agricultural Extension WorkersIntegrated Soil Fertilty Management Training Manual For Zambia’s Agricultural Extension Workers

ZARI_Pub

This manual is produced by the Zambia Soil Health Consortium to provide remedies to constraints associated with declining soil fertility in Zambia. The rate of soil fertility decline is high due to limited use of organic manures, fertilizers and low adoption of agronomic practices that are cardinal to good soil management. This is leading to low and declining crop yields across all the key agro-ecosystems of Zambia. To reverse this trend extension staff need to be conversant with appropriate soil fertility management practices. Integrated Soil Fertility management (ISFM) has been recognized as an appropriate approach for restoration of soil fertility and increasing crop yields in most of the degraded lands in Zambia.
