IFDC has focused on increasing and sustaining food security and agricultural productivity in over 100 developing countries through the development and transfer of effective and environmentally sound crop nutrient technology and agribusiness expertise.
Persistently, there has been lower actual yields than potential yield for all crops in Ghana. Meanwhile, to achieve food security and reduce poverty in the country, crop productivity must be improved. The observed shortfall in yield is due to several factors, and one of such crucial factors is the declining soil fertility in the country. Unfortunately, fertilizer use in the country is also below recommended application rates. These complexities between low yield and underapplication of fertilizer require assessment. This would help establish the relationship between the quantity of fertilizer used in the production of an observed yield and to move such analysis from treatment-control plots to farmers own fields. FEFARI has gathered a wide range of data including the outputs and yields of some major crops of the country. An intern is therefore needed to analyse the fertilizer-yield relationship in order to establish a baseline information upon which impacts of the project can be measured. The student is expected to address the following and any other relevant objective.
Application should include the following:
