Overview Objectives

It is widely recognised that the underperformance of crops in Myanmar is closely related to the inadequate supply of nutrients, particularly nitrogen.

The overall aim of the project is to increase incomes and strengthen local food security of small-scale farmers and their families in central Myanmar by improved fertiliser use and associated crop management practices. Research will be complemented by capacity building of Myanmar agricultural scientists and academics to sustain and promote improved management practices, and resulting improvements to livelihoods, well into the future.
