ISFM involves the use of inorganic fer-tilizers and organic inputs, such as green manure, and aims to maximize agronomic efficiency (Vanlauwe et al., 2011). This section ends with an assessment of fer­ tiliser use on health and the environment. Traditional farming systems in Sub-Saharan Africa depend primarily on mining soil nutrients. with soil erosion, sedimentation of dams, integrated soil fertility management and other related issues, which are all inline with the major theme of the workshop. Advances in Integrated Soil Fertility Management in sub-Saharan Africa: Challenges and Opportunities. Integrated soil fertility management (ISFM) technologies for African smallholders should consider (i) within‐farm soil heterogeneity; (ii) long‐term dynamics and variability; (iii) manure quality and availability; (iv) access to fertilizers; and (v) competing uses for crop residues. Use of organic manures like FYM, compost, vermicompost, biogas, slurry, poultry manure, bio-compost, press mud cakes, phosphocompost . ii. The opportunity… Finally, fertilizer is back on the African agenda! The African Green Revolution aims at intensifying agriculture through dissemination of Integrated Soil Fertility Management (ISFM). Integrated soil fertility manage-ment (ISFM) (Kimani et al., 2003) provides an opportunity to optimize the use of available resources, thereby reducing pollution and costs from overuse of N fertilizers (conven-tional management). Integration of soil fertility restoring crops like green manures, legumes etc. 24. 1 complex interactions between different system components, fertility management in 2 organic farming relies on a long-term integrated approach rather than the more short- 3 term very targeted solutions common in conventional agriculture. Integrated soil fertility management requires the active involvement of farmers and other stakeholders in decision-making, and calls for a more demand-led, participatory and flexible way of providing research, advi­ sory and training services to farmers. 12. 24 pp. A study led by the Natural Resources Institute in collaboration with the Tropical Soil Biology and Fertility Programme (TSBF) and the African Highlands Initiative (AHI) is focused on issues in banana, maize, and cassava-based cropping systems. Soil Fertility • There are 17 known elements that are essential for plant growth • Plants require nutrients that are not created through photosynthesis – H, O, C Plants get from air and water • Macronutrients – N, P, K High amounts –Ca,a, g, Mg, S Lesser amounts • Micronutrients – Fe, Mn, B, Mo, Cu, Zn, Cl Small amounts. Integrated plant nutrient management. Therefore, the use of integrated soil fertility management with inclusion and combination of manure, compost, crop rotation, soil conservation practices such as minimum tillage, tied-ridging, residue management and other practices together with chemical fertilizer and improved germplasms gives the better production and keeps the soil fertility status to a better level.

Unless we wake up soon and reverse these disastrous trends, the future viability of African food systems will indeed be imperiled.’ Dr. Norman Borlaug, 14 March 2003, Muscle Shoals, Alabama, U.S.A. Integrated soil fertility management (ISFM) is a means to enhance crop productivity while maximizing the agronomic efficiency (AE) of applied inputs, and can thus contribute to sustainable intensification.

Integrated soil fertility management (ISFM) is important in production of vegetable crops which have short production cycles like tomato and require adequate supply of soil nutrients to improve crop productivity and ensure sustainable production (Mfombep et al., 2016). Adopting integrated soil fertility management (ISFM) requires policy and cultural changes in much of the developing world especially holders of small farms on marginal land, who rarely practise soil fertility management.
