      On-farm trials in the Ashanti region in Ghana have shown that fertilizers can increase the yield of mature cocoa by 50 percent and more on sites where environment and management are not the main yield limiting factors. In on-farm trials in Côte d’Ivoire in the period fertilizers increased the average yield from to kg per. Deforestation, resulting soil erosion, and poor crop management are the major causes of land degradation. Soil is the farmer's basic resource, and thus, soil fertility is a key determinant in human development. This book presents the important concepts of soil fertility management in an easy-to-understand format.
