Review of Fertilizer Use by Crop And by Product in Kenya
This study focuses on the agricultural sector in Kenya, which plays a pivotal role in the economy, contributing significantly to GDP, export earnings, and employment. The study, commissioned by the AfricaFertilizer.org initiative, aims to enhance the availability and quality of official fertilizer statistics. It seeks to estimate fertilizer consumption and Fertilizer Use By Crop (FUBC) statistics for significant crops in Kenya between 2014 and 2016. The study utilizes a stakeholders-based approach involving public and private partners to develop a cost-effective framework for estimating fertilizer consumption. The methodological approach involves data collection from various sources, including farm-level crop production data, agro-dealer surveys, key informant interviews, and secondary data from research institutions. The study's findings contribute to a better understanding of fertilizer utilization, distribution channels, and the overall fertilizer market in Kenya.
