Togo mobilizes 120,000 t of fertilizer for the 2020-2021 agricultural campaign

(Togo First) - For the 2020-2021 agricultural campaign, Togo mobilized 120,000 tons of fertilizer, according to a recent note published by the ministry of agriculture and husbandry. 

This volume breaks into 40,000 tons of urea, 80,000 t of NPK15-15-15, and organic fertilizers. The country, it should be noted, uses an average of 61,000 t of fertilizer per annum, according to data obtained by AfricaFertilizer. 

Besides fertilizers, 2,600 t of enhanced and certified seeds (corn, rice, sorghum, cowpea, groundnut, sesame, and fonio) were supplied and distributed across 325 accredited sales points across the country. 

All the resources contribute to the government’s goal to boost the sector and improve agricultural yields, double related revenues and achieve Zero Hunger in Togo. 

In effect, Lomé currently eyes an annual output of 225,000 t of cotton, nearly 2 million t of maize, about 332,508 t of rice, and 140,000 t of soybeans. In parallel, the country hopes to increase its agricultural revenues by around XOF230 billion.
