African Plant Nutrition Institute(APNI) Outreach Fellowship Award for Graduate Students For The Year 2022

The African Plant Nutrition Institute(APNI) Outreach Fellowship is looking forward for  creative proposals that will focus on accelerated delivery and adoption of improved soil fertility management in Africa.

The Fellowship aims to provide support for education, training, and communication programs that will aid improvement of the use and efficiency of plant nutrients in African agro-ecosystems. Soil fertility management needs a more balanced approach that adequately addresses a wide range of practices targeted on meeting economic, environmental, and social goals. Educational programs that actualize these goals are often ignored.
