"There is much more to soil health than fertilizers, but they are an essential ingredient for unleashing the potential of Africa's smallholder farmers to create a uniquely African Green Revolution that delivers jobs and better incomes to rural communities and creates more sustainable approaches to farming," Jama said.

He said that going forward, AGRA's Soil Health Program wants to become even more ambitious, with efforts to work across an entire country to encourage adoption of ISFM practices. And it will continue to support governments in efforts to improve quality control for farm inputs and to develop a new brain trust of soil scientists, extension workers and farmer experts. The report on soil health noted that over the last five years, AGRA has helped train 4,800 extension workers and 134,000 lead farmers, while also supporting more than 170 studentshalf of whom are womenstudying soil science and agronomy at African universities.
