The supply of inorganic fertilizers to smallholder farmers in Uganda

This brief presents the results of a late-2010 study of fertilizer supply to smallholder farmers in Uganda that was done to assess whether the taxes (explicit or implicit) that are applied at various points along the fertilizer importation and marketing chain or the absence of key public goods and services reduce the access that smallholder farmers have to fertilizer. This study objective is met by taking a broader look at how fertilizer is sup-plied to smallholder farmers and how they do or do not make use of it.
