Agricultural production and soil nutrient mining in africa

Aug 07, 2019· Agricultural development is vital to Africa’s economic growth, food security, and poverty alleviation. However, this paper reveals the severe extent of soil nutrient extraction by agriculture, and finds that unless these trends are reversed, African countries will struggle to produce enough food to feed their growing populations.

Soil nutrient maps of Sub-Saharan Africa: assessment of

Aug 02, 2017· Spatial predictions of soil macro and micro-nutrient content across Sub-Saharan Africa at 250 m spatial resolution and for 0–30 cm depth interval are presented. Predictions were produced for 15 target nutrients: organic carbon (C) and total (organic) nitrogen (N), total phosphorus (P), and extractable—phosphorus (P), potassium (K), calcium (Ca), magnesium (Mg), sulfur (S), sodium (Na

Canada-Africa 4R Solution and Precision Nutrient

Answer: Yes, nutrient mining is considered. Once target yield is assessed, Nutrient Expert’s decision rules determine removal based on yield target. Recommendation caters to what will be taken up, but also maintains nutrients in the soil, accounting for what is removed. Presentation 4: Soil Recapitalization: A key to Building Climate

Research on nutrient flows and balances in west Africa

Dec 01, 1998· In west Africa, country totals obtained from a continental study by Stoorvogel and Smaling (1990)show that nutrient outputs generally exceed nutrient inputs. The study, commissioned by FAO on N, P, and K balances for 35 crops in 38 sub-Saharan African countries revealed that the mean annual losses per hectare were approximately 22 kg N, 2.5 kg P, and 15 kg K in the period

REVIEW: Nutrient stripping: the global disparity between

Whilst economic yields can be sustained for short periods without fertiliser addition, productivity is fuelled partly by the mining of organic nutrients inducing a rapid decline in both the quantity and quality of soil organic matter (with obvious negative consequences beyond nutrient recycling such a loss in soil structure, reduced biological
