Sub-Saharan Africa Compared by Agriculture > Fertilizer > Consumption > Metric tons > Per capita

DEFINITION: Fertilizer consumption measures the quantity of plant nutrients used per unit of arable land. Fertilizer products cover nitrogenous, potash, and phosphate fertilizers (including ground rock phosphate). Traditional nutrients--animal and plant manures--are not included. The time reference for fertilizer consumption is the crop year (July through June). Per capita figures expressed per 1,000 population.
