Most of the world's hunger and poverty occurs in rural areas. The use of fertilisers could improve agricultural productivity in these areas. However, many developing countries attach a low priority to the subsistence/smallholder sector, particularly in disadvantaged areas. Properly applied, fertiliser use is sustainable, not only improving agricultural productivity but also helping to avoid land degradation. Incorrectly used, fertilisers may be harmful. In order to assess the present and potential efficiency of fertiliser use, it is necessary to know, for each agro-ecological region of each country: the crops on which fertilisers are being used; the social and structural context; appropriate fertiliser application rates; the profitability of fertiliser application at these rates; the arrangements for supplying fertilisers to farmers and for marketing their produce; the credit facilities available to farmers and distributors; whether sufficient research on appropriate fertilsation techniques is being carried out; and whether the resulting information is reaching the farmers. This publication reviews these various issues, substantiated by examples from each country, and analyses available statistics on fertiliser use by crop.
