Fertilizer Use by Crop

This publication is based on 21 country reports on fertiliser use by crop issued by FAO between 2002 and 2006. Its objective is to demonstrate the importance of information on fertiliser use by crop, not only on a national level but also by agro-ecological zone, or in even greater detail. It also aims to demonstrate how the correct use of fertilisers could help to achieve the first target of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) of the United Nations, i.e. eradicate extreme poverty and hunger.
