Will compost turn out to be the magic mineral for African agriculture?

Introducing phosphorous back in African soil is important as it helps plants in early life to build root systems.

80 per cent of phosphate reserves are controlled by five countries. Morocco has 75 per cent of the global reserves. After an 800 per cent price hike in 2008, phosphate rock has become costly.

An alternative option is compost. Compost not only provides phosphorous and other nutrients but can also restore the soil structure by adding organic matter.

Compared to mineral fertilizers, compost is much more accessible and economic.

Will cost-effective compost rejuvenate African agriculture?
