  title={Evaluating NUTMON nutrient balancing in Sub-Saharan Africa},
  author={Jens F{\ae}rge and Jakob Magid},
  journal={Nutrient Cycling in Agroecosystems},
Nutrient balances for the last two decades in Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) reveal, almost unequivocally, alarming nutrient deficiencies. The nutrient balancing in SSA was initiated by Stoorvogel and Smaling [Report 28, Winand Staring Centre, 1990] and Smaling et al. [Fert. Res. 35 (2003) 237].
