Soil Fertility map : Togo and Moroccan foundation OCP strengthen their alliance

(Togo First) - Togo, via the Ministry of Agriculture, recently signed a specific agreement in the framework of its soil fertility map elaboration program. Through the agreement baptized "Convention Spécifique n°2," Moroccan Foundation OCP will enhance its support to the country for the elaboration of the said map.  

Togo is in partnership with OCP in the framework of a 2-year program aimed at assessing the level of fertility over needs in terms of fertilizers. The program (called Fertitogo) will help Togo introduce fertilization techniques based on a precise knowledge of the soil and its fertilizer needs.

The estimated investment for the program is XOF695 million (XOF150 million to be provided by OCP and XOF541 million by Togo). 

To date, 50.46% of the national territory has already been sampled by the Togolese Institute of Agronomical Research (ITRA). In addition, thematic maps are already available for the Savanes and Kara region. A digital platform will be built for the fertility map of agricultural soils.
