Fertilizer Sector Improvement



The Fertilizer Sector Improvement project (FSI+) seeks to increase and enhance food security for smallholder farmers in target districts in Myanmar. The project is funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development.


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).
