USAID FDP MD
Scaling Up Fertilizer Deep Placement and Microdosing Technologies in Mali
C4CP, funded by USAID from 2014 to 2018, aims at increasing food security and incomes for men and women cotton farmers in targeted areas of Benin, Burkina Faso, Chad and Mali. The project will raise the incomes of cotton producers and processors by introducing competitive and sustainable strategies to boost farm productivity and improve post-harvest processes.
Increasing Cereal Crop Productivity
The FDP MD project, funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) from 2014 to 2017, is increasing cereal crop productivity in Mali. The project promotes and disseminates innovative fertilizer-based technologies for targeted crops including rice, millet and sorghum within the country.
Farmers are also implementing microdosing (MD) technology on their land. Microdosing is the application of very small amounts of fertilizer directly to plant roots. The method increases fertilizer efficiency and can double the productivity of millet and sorghum crops.
