The report describes the general economy and agriculture of the sub-region. It summarizes a good deal of the published information about soil types and their uses, in the countries. It highlights the constraints to the development of the fertilizer sector, such as continued practice of defective agricultural/farming systems, farmers' unwillingness to use fertilizers, lack of information, and poor extension services and, the unavailability of the right type of fertilizers in the right place, the right quantity and at the right time. Finally, the report draws a number of conclusions and recommends action to increase food production through the promotion of fertilizer use on a sound basis, giving due consideration to the environmental implications
