Data shows: more than 30% of the soils have nutrient limitations
SoilCares Foundation has analysed the results of more than 35000 soil samples analysed which were analysed using AgroCares technology. The results are alarming.
The technology and applications of AgroCares allow for fast, affordable and accessible testing of soil samples. Since its introduction in 2017 more than 200.000 farmers benefitted from this technology. Now, SoilCares Foundation has analysed the results of 36477 soil samples. The samples originated from Kenya, Cote d'Ivoire, Zambia, Rwanda, Burundi, Poland, Philippines, Canada and Denmark. Of these samples more than 30% showed low N contents (i.e. less than 1 g/kg). The situation is most severe in Cote d'Ivoire and Zambia. Low N contents mean that crop production is limited, unless corrective measures, like applying organic or mineral fertilisers, are applied.
