Gain critical insight into the potential consumption of fertilizer products in Zambia.
This report is fundamental reading for those involved in fertilizer supply industries. Agriculture employs 60% of the population of Zambia and is the main source of income and employment for those living in rural areas.
Zambia’s agricultural output is dominated by maize. This is largely due to government policy, which has provided subsidised seed and fertilizer.
