Fertilizer Research and Responsible Implementation (FERARI) Program

Balanced fertilizers are essential for sustainable agricultural intensification in Ghana. Widespread adoption of appropriate balanced fertilizers requires a transformation of the fertilizer and food systems that must be driven by evidence-based agro-technical perspectives embedded in multi-stakeholder processes to create enabling conditions for adoption. Achieving such a process of transformation is the aim of the public-private program FERARI, led by IFDC.

The widespread adoption of appropriate fertilizers by famers requires their participation in our search for agro-technological and socio-institutional innovations and our understanding of their perceptions of soil fertility, availability of other resources, and socio-economic conditions. Students therefore conduct surveys among representative samples of farmers and farmer groups. The transcriptionists (Dagbani, Nanugli and Twi) will support a PhD student in the conduct of his survey.
