Fertilizer ApplicationThe International Fertilizer Development Centre (IFDC) has predicted an exponential increase in fertilizer consumption in 2018 by Nigerian farmers.
This, the centre said was as a result of the remarkable improvements in the local blending of the agricultural input under the Presidential Fertilizer Initiative of the Federal Government.
According to a report recently released by the IFDC in collaboration with the Food and Agricultural Organisation (FAO) and other international agencies, fertilizer uptake by Nigerian farmers increased by 63 percent in 2017, rising from 959,364 metric tonnes in 2016 to 1,564,816 metric tonnes in 2017.
The report, which also noted the increases in the exportation of Urea by Nigeria, said exports in this area increased from 329,630 metric tonnes in 2016 to 659,603mt in 2017, with over 50 percent of the exports going to Brazil.
The document quoted a member of the Fertilizer Producers and Suppliers Association of Nigeria, Mr Gideon Negedu as saying the industry in Nigeria targets to produce more than one million metric tonnes of blended NPK fertilizer in 2018.
