Growing Africa is designed to be a source for interpreted information on integrating improved nutrient management practices into African food systems.


Growing Africa is a new semi-annual, digital publication initiated by the African Plant Nutrition Institute (APNI) to provide a forum serving stakeholders interested in Africa-centric plant nutrition science. The publication seeks to strengthen connections within the research community in Africa, and promote impactful solutions, programs and activities. Growing Africa‘s focus is actionable scientific information to enable Agricultural Research for Development.

As a provider of practical information, Growing Africa serves a target audience of agricultural practitioners (agronomists, extension workers, agri-business) as well as advanced farmers, university students, researchers, academics, supply and value chain stakeholders, and policy makers.
