  • 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]. Their nutrient monitoring (NUTMON) concept is conducted as input–output analysis. Inputs are fertilizers, mineral and organic, wet and dry deposition, nitrogen fixation and sedimentation. Outputs are… CONTINUE READING
