Agro-Input Suppliers Limited (AISL) will work with the Department of Agriculture Research and the International Institute of Tropical Agriculture to commercialize NITROFIX, a legume inoculant that contains rhizobia bacteria that boost legumes' natural nitrogen fixation. To increase product availability and ensure proper use, AISL will sell NITROFIX through 25 agrodealers, set up 116 demonstration plots, and organize 50 farmer field days to show the difference between soybeans planted with and without NITROFIX.
Outcome: AISL will sell 500,000 packets of NITROFIX, and up to 80,000 smallholder farmers will access NITROFIX, increasing soybean yields by up to 50 percent.
