Farm Inputs

Studies conducted by SATG reveal that Somali soils are generally low in phosphorous and nitrogen and high in pH. Diammonium phosphate and Urea are widely used to address these identified soil nutrient deficiencies.

Soil Analysis

Soil Analysis & Seed Testing

Filsan provides a soil analysis service that helps farmers make an informed decision on soil-fertility interventions. Our seed testing facility tests for germination, purity, and moisture content prior to the sale. 

Over 400 Farm Members

Filsan, in partnership with the Somali Agriculture Technical Group (SATG), has actively demonstrated various need-based technologies in agriculture and has been credited with many landmark achievements in seed system developments and related policy implications. SATG’s Agri-business Incubation Centre (ABIC) in Afgoi, 30 km from Mogadishu, is a model research and demonstration site for many enthusiastic farmers and entrepreneurs interested in agricultural development.
