Over 10 000 direct beneficiaries of Senegal are consistently impacted positively while growing more nutritious and marketable crops and improving food security. Local farmers, especially women, will have better chance to increase revenues, productivity and profit margins.
The 4R Solution project funded by Global Aﬀairs Canada will improve socio-economic wellbeing and resilience of 80,000 smallholder farmers, particularly women, in Ethiopia, Ghana and Senegal by improving agricultural productivity and farm income by incorporating 4R Nutrient Stewardship (Right Source @ Right Rate, Right Time, Right Place®) into fertilizer use management while incorporating important gender and environmental resilience strategies.
