As a result of the World Health Organization’s (WHO) escalation of the COVID-19 virus as a global pandemic on March 11, 2020, it is with regret that we made the decision to postpone the Workshop .It is our intention to host the event on a later date that is still to be determined. The program team is continuing to work to set a new date and planning of the program. We will update you via this email list as soon as a new date is set.

=====================================================================================

You are cordially invited to attend the first Canada – Africa 4R Solution and Precision
Nutrient Management Workshop – Sharing Knowledge to Build African Agriculture.

The workshop will create a 4R academic network to support knowledge transfer
between Canada and Africa. This will help identify 4R and precision agriculture
research and extension gaps in Africa and raise the global profile of 4R Nutrient
Stewardship. Ultimately, this will create an opportunity for future investment in 4Rs
and precision agriculture research and extension in Africa.

The workshop is organized as part of the Global Affairs Canada-funded 4R Solution
project that is being implemented in three Sub-Saharan African countries: Ethiopia,
Ghana and Senegal. The initiative aims to improve socioeconomic wellbeing and
resilience of smallholder farmers, particularly women, by incorporating 4R Nutrient
Management practices (Right Source @ Right Rate, Right Time, Right Place) to
improve on-farm economics, crop productivity and fertilizer efficiency.

The workshop will also lay the groundwork for a follow-up workshop at the Mohammed
VI Polytechnic University in Morocco in 2021.
