Substandard fertilizers and consequences
Oct 09: The paper carries an analysis of fake or substandard fertilisers which is a growing concern in many countries. Even in places not affected by fertiliser quality problems, uncertainty could arise due to weather variability, soil quality or doubts about the effectiveness of fertiliser in general.
8In regions where trust in fertiliser quality is less of a concern, uncertainty can arise when low quality fertiliser, which contains fewer nutrients than labelled on the package, is sold in markets.
8This research is important for understanding why there are varying intensities in the application rate among farmers and how risk aversion influences fertiliser intensity, which helps in developing policies to change fertiliser use pattern.
