    Abstract

    There are many technologies available that can improve soil fertility, including mineral and organic fertilizers, use of rock phosphates, diversification of land use (trees, green manuring, improved fallow), and soil conservation. However, too few farmers in West Africa use these for various reasons. A plea is made for bringing the technologies together under integrated nutrient management, which should be the package that best serves farmers' capital and labour availability, and their social interest.
