Soil fertility map in Morocco

Map of Moroccan soil project conducted under agreement between the Ministry of agriculture, OCP group and NARS institutions (INRA, IAVHII, ENAMeknes) for a 5 years period ( 2010-2014) with the objective to develop a national map of soil fertility: Potassium, Phosphorus and Organic Matter, in addition to other classic soils attributes.
This map will guide the rational use of fertilizer for better fertilization of cultures, to improve sustainable agricultural production in Morocco. It will also enable the development of regional averages of fertilizer formulas for the main crops that will allow the vast majority of farmers who do soil test analysis, to use more suited  fertilizers formulas to their region conditions.
