With the increasing interest in developing and delivering Integrated Soil Fertility Management (ISFM) options to farmers across Africa, and the aim of increasing crop yields, and maintaining and restoring soil health, the International Fertilizer Development Center (IFDC), the African Plant Nutrition Institute (APNI), and IITA, also representing the Excellence in Agronomy (EiA) Initiative of CGIAR, are exploring collaboration towards strengthening the delivery of technical assistance to future investments in the agronomy space.
