Good Agricultural Practices
The continued cultivation of the land and use of poor agriculture practices results in poor soil that does not support healthy plant establishment. It is important to improve the soil structure and soil nutrition content through the use of good agricultural practices such as conservation agriculture, crop rotation, and direct application of soil nutrients using either organic or inorganic fertilizers.
Soil analysis conducted by SATG revealed that the soils in Somalia are deficient in Nitrogen, Phosphorous and Potassium. Filsan Soil Labroratry Service is engaged in the procurement of Urea, DAP and NPK to make fertilizer readily available to the farmers. The soil analysis data allows the farmers to make an informed decision on the amount for fertilizer required to be applied in their farms.
