Proportion of Hh reporting No use of Soil Fertility Methods 2012
In order to increase yields, farmers will need to recognize the problems of soil erosion and soil fertility constraints. On the sloping lands, the use of trees and grasses as vegetative strips is highly recommended to control erosion, begin to stabilize the slopes, and build up soil organic matter. Farmers will need to apply nitrogen-containing fertilizers, which can best be done as mineral fertilizer combined with organic inputs such as animal manures and leguminous cover crops and trees. Phosphorus and potassium are also likely needed to address soil fertility problems. For more information please read the 10 commune baseline report here.
