About the African Plant Nutrition Outreach Fellowship Award
The African Plant Nutrition Institute (APNI) is a not-for-profit research and education organization founded in 2019 and based in Benguérir, Morocco with a mission to enhance plant nutrition for a resilient and food-secure Africa. The 2022 African Plant Nutrition Outreach Fellowship will support education, training, and communication programs relevant to improving the use and efficiency of plant nutrients in African agro-ecosystems. Awards of USD $5,000 each are available to two innovative African scientists, extension specialists, or educators. Soil fertility management requires a balanced approach that addresses a full range of practices focused on meeting economic, environmental and social goals. Educational outreach that accomplishes these goals is too often overlooked.
