Small pack fertiliser for Nigeria
In Nigeria, as elsewhere in Africa, affording fertiliser when it is needed most is a real problem for many small-scale farmers. Fertiliser tends to be delivered late, is expensive and may be adulterated or of poor quality. But recently, the Notore chemical company, which runs Nigeria's only urea fertiliser factory, has done a pilot project to sell fertiliser in small, 1 kilo bags. It's also promoting the packs through village demonstrators. Aveseh Asough goes to Katsina state in the north of the country to find out more.
