Year published: 25/03/2014

CountrySTAT and AfricaFertilizer.org are partnering in Nigeria since 2013 to improve the accuracy and the availability of comprehensive, detailed national and sub-national statistics on fertilizer production, trade, and consumption.

Technical meetings and training workshop were held in April and October 2013, during which a Fertilizer Technical Working sub-group was created to review these data and submit output tables for validation by the National Technical Working Group of CountrySTAT Nigeria.

 

The main objectives of the workshop held on 24-25 March 2014 at Ramat Hotel and Suites are to validate 2009 to 2012 fertilizer national statistics by product, and to review the findings and recommendations of the recent study on fertilizer consumption conducted by FEPSAN.
