Assessment of Fertilizer Distribution Systems and Opportunities for Developing Fertilizer Blends: Malawi

This assessment explores fertilizer distribution and development opportunities in Malawi, drawing from interviews with key informants and document reviews. It investigates available soil information, fertilizer inventories, and the rationale behind fertilizer blend development. The study examines fertilizer recommendations for key crops such as maize, rice, and soybeans, evaluating their suitability and the efficacy of different formulations. Challenges including limited soils data, government regulations, and the need for tailored regional formulations are highlighted. Key findings suggest a need for comprehensive soil analyses and tailored fertilizer formulations to optimize crop yields in Malawi.
