FERARI Quarterly Newsletter-March 2021
This abstract outlines the collaboration between the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research - Soil Research Institute (CSIR-SRI) and the Fertilizer Research and Responsible Implementation (FERARI) program in Ghana. CSIR-SRI is developing crop- and soil-specific fertilizer recommendations, with validated blends for crops like maize, rice, and soybean. FERARI supports CSIR-SRI in implementing fertilizer trials in the Forest-Savanna Transitional zone. CSIR-SRI contributes by absorbing a portion of soil and plant tissue analysis costs, while FERARI assists in capacity-building and expertise sharing. The abstract also introduces FERARI's doctoral students and their research themes, emphasizing a multidisciplinary approach to enhance the Ghana fertilizer value chain. The collaboration aims to improve crop yield, nutrition, and socioeconomic outcomes through research and implementation.
