    Author(s): Vanlauwe, Bernard | Abstract: Traditional farming systems in sub-Saharan Africa depend primarily on mining soil nutrients. The African Green Revolution aims at intensifying agriculture through dissemination of Integrated Soil Fertility Management (ISFM). In this paper we develop a robust and operational definition of ISFM, based on detailed knowledge of African farming systems and Cited by: 3. For N, annual depletion was recorded at all levels at rates of 22 kg ha −1 (sub-Saharan Africa), kg ha −1 (Kisii District, Kenya), and 71 kg ha −1 (average for 26 farms in Kisii, Kakamega, and Embu Districts). If the soil nutrient balance is to become a suitable land quality indicator for wider use as a policy instrument, increased.   1. Introduction. Achieving food security is a key agenda that is eluding governments in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) (Shapouri et al., ).Low productivity of food crops due to low nutrient application, in a region that has faced land degradation for several decades, is one of the major contributors to food insecurity in SSA (IFDC, , Shapouri et al., , Muller et al., ), besides Cited by:
