OCP AFRICA's agronomic expertise and deep understanding of Africa’s soils are grounded in a longstanding
tradition of scientific research.
In addition to providing farmers access to educational resources, OCP AFRICA's School Lab raises awareness about the importance of soil testing by providing demonstrations with technology from SoilCares.. Through this program, farmers receive necessary information about fertilizer use and training on agronomic best practices.
OCP AFRICA's School Lab has already assisted over 275,000 farmers across Kenya, Nigeria, Togo, Burkina Faso, Ghana, Tanzania and Côte d’Ivoire. As part of OCP AFRICA's plan to develop customized fertilizer products over the next three years, agronomic trials have been implemented in Nigeria, Ethiopia, Rwanda, Côte d’Ivoire and Cameroun, providing opportunities for researchers to gather information about specific soil types and crops including maize,cocoa, cassava and teff.
