Agric Ministry projects difficulty in fertiliser supply in 2022

    The Ministry of Food and Agriculture is projecting 2022 as a difficult year for government’s flagship programme, ‘Planting for Food and Jobs’ because of anticipated shortages of fertiliser supply.

    According to Lead Director for the programme, Seth Osei Akoto, the Ministry was not able to meet the target for the distribution of fertiliser in 2021.

    The current conflict between Russia and Ukraine is also going to pose an even greater challenge as Russia is a leading producer of fertiliser.

    Speaking at the Soil Health Stakeholder Forum organised by the Israeli Embassy, Mr Akoto indicated that the way out will be to rely heavily on organic fertiliser.
