Maximizing Agricultural Revenue and
Key Enterprises in Targeted Sites
MARKETS II is strengthening the supply and demand of urea briquettes in Nigeria. The project is funded by USAID with lead implementation partners, Chemonics, Notore chemical Industries Ltd. and NPFS.
Promoting Fertilizer Deep Placement
IFDC’s MARKETS II project (2012-2017) is facilitating a public-private partnership (PPP) between Notore Chemical Industries Ltd. and Nigeria’s National Program for Food Security (NPFS) to promote the use of fertilizer deep placement (FDP) technology.
Strengthening the Fertilizer Sector
IFDC is continuing to build Nigeria’s fertilizer sector by:
- Improving targeted farmer access to agro-inputs
- Loaning urea briquette manufacturing machines to Notore and training the company on how to use the machines
- Facilitating Notore distribution of briquettes via its supply channels to agro-dealers located in rice-growing regions where the project has FDP demonstration fields.
