Abstract

This report is a critical review of the technical, economic, and institutional constraints to improving soil fertility in Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA), and actions recommended to address them. The report is a review of selected literature, illustrated by a synthesis of the most important lessons from four country action plans prepared for Ghana, Kenya, Malawi, and Mali. The action plans were formulated by country researchers to identify ways to improve soil fertility in their respective countries.
