Adopting integrated soil fertility management (ISFM) requires policy and cultural changes in much of the developing world especially holders of small farms on marginal land, who rarely practise soil fertility management. Unless we wake up soon and reverse these disastrous trends, the future viability of African food systems will indeed be imperiled.’ Dr. Norman Borlaug, 14 March 2003, Muscle Shoals, Alabama, U.S.A. ii. integrated soil fertility management framework’, abbreviated as the Optimizing Fertilizer Recommendations in Africa (OFRA), was implemented to develop the basis for fertilizer use optimization, that is, more profitable fertilizer use.

Integrated soil fertility management (ISFM) is important in production of vegetable crops which have short production cycles like tomato and require adequate supply of soil nutrients to improve crop productivity and ensure sustainable production (Mfombep et al., 2016). Soil fertility evaluation methods, critical limits of plant nutrient elements and hunger signs. Therefore, the use of integrated soil fertility management with inclusion and combination of manure, compost, crop rotation, soil conservation practices such as minimum tillage, tied-ridging, residue management and other practices together with chemical fertilizer and improved germplasms gives the better production and keeps the soil fertility status to a better level. Traditional farming systems in Sub-Saharan Africa depend primarily on mining soil nutrients. Kimani, J.R. Okalebo, C.O. Integrated soil fertility management (ISFM) technologies for African smallholders should consider (i) within‐farm soil heterogeneity; (ii) long‐term dynamics and variability; (iii) manure quality and availability; (iv) access to fertilizers; and (v) competing uses for crop residues. 1 complex interactions between different system components, fertility management in 2 organic farming relies on a long-term integrated approach rather than the more short- 3 term very targeted solutions common in conventional agriculture. Soil Fertility • There are 17 known elements that are essential for plant growth • Plants require nutrients that are not created through photosynthesis – H, O, C Plants get from air and water • Macronutrients – N, P, K High amounts –Ca,a, g, Mg, S Lesser amounts • Micronutrients – Fe, Mn, B, Mo, Cu, Zn, Cl Small amounts.

Cost-effective soil fertility management options for smallholder farmers in Malawi. Integrated soil fertility management on small-scale farms in Eastern Province of Zambia Thomas Raussen (ed.). Integrated soil fertility management (ISFM) is rapidly becoming more accepted by development and extension programs in SSA, and, most importantly, by smallholder farmers. Therefore the use of integrated soil fertility management strategy with inclusion and combination of manure, compost, crop rotation, soil conservation practices such as minimum tillage, tid-ridging, residue management and other practices together with chemical fertilizer and improved crop varieties gives the better production and keeps the soil fertility status to a better level.
