Kimani, J.R. Okalebo, C.O. Advances In Integrated Soil Fertility Management In Sub Saharan Africa Challenges And Opportunities. Soil Fertility • There are 17 known elements that are essential for plant growth • Plants require nutrients that are not created through photosynthesis – H, O, C Plants get from air and water • Macronutrients – N, P, K High amounts –Ca,a, g, Mg, S Lesser amounts • Micronutrients – Fe, Mn, B, Mo, Cu, Zn, Cl Small amounts. or 137t/ha/yearvi Limited intercropping: while crop rotation and fallowing have implementation challenges related to food security and small size of land holdings, intercropping does not face these same challenges, yet current use is nearly non-existent. Integrated soil fertility management (ISFM) is important in production of vegetable crops which have short production cycles like tomato and require adequate supply of soil nutrients to improve crop productivity and ensure sustainable production (Mfombep et al., 2016). Integrated Soil Fertility Management (ISFM) has been recognized as an appropriate approach for restoration of soil fertility and increasing crop yields in most of the degraded lands in Zambia. 14. Integrated soil fertility management requires the active involvement of farmers and other stakeholders in decision-making, and calls for a more demand-led, participatory and flexible way of providing research, advi­ sory and training services to farmers. Through OFRA, national research institutes of 13 sub-Saharan African countries partnered Pages 1-28. Integrated plant nutrient management. Schlecht, E. (et al.) Recycling of crop residues . Use of organic manures like FYM, compost, vermicompost, biogas, slurry, poultry manure, bio-compost, press mud cakes, phosphocompost . Integrated soil fertility management (ISFM) is rapidly becoming more accepted by development and extension programs in SSA, and, most importantly, by smallholder farmers. Pages 29-43. iii. ISFM is about expanding the choice set of farmers by increasing their awareness of the variety of options available and how they may complement or substitute for one another.

Integrated soil fertility management (ISFM) technologies for African smallholders should consider (i) within‐farm soil heterogeneity; (ii) long‐term dynamics and variability; (iii) manure quality and availability; (iv) access to fertilizers; and (v) competing uses for crop residues.

Integrated soil fertility management on small-scale farms in Eastern Province of Zambia Thomas Raussen (ed.). The African Green Revolution aims at intensifying agriculture through dissemination of Integrated Soil Fertility Management (ISFM). Therefore, the use of integrated soil fertility management with inclusion and combination of manure, compost, crop rotation, soil conservation practices such as minimum tillage, tied-ridging, residue management and other practices together with chemical fertilizer and improved germplasms gives the better production and keeps the soil fertility status to a better level. 1 complex interactions between different system components, fertility management in 2 organic farming relies on a long-term integrated approach rather than the more short- 3 term very targeted solutions common in conventional agriculture.
