seeks to increase and enhance food security for smallholder farmers in target districts in Myanmar.
Promoting the Application of Balanced Fertilizer
The Fertilizer Sector Improvement (FSI) project, funded by USAID, began in March 2014 as a three-year project. In May 2015, it was expanded and extended to a five-year project known as FSI+ (2014-2019). The project promotes the application of balanced fertilizer with urea deep placement (UDP).
Targeting Burmese Smallholder Farmers
FSI+ targets Burmese smallholder farmers in rice-rice and
rice-gram cropping systems and encourages
efficiencies of demand and supply of agricultural
inputs with emphasis on the manufacture and
sale of urea briquettes.
