At the beginning of 2016, Yara purchased Greenbelt Fertilizers, thereby taking over the business in Zambia, Malawi and Mozambique. Since then, we continue to serve both Commercial and Smallholder Farmers in the 3 countries.
Zambia, Malawi, and Mozambique form part of one of the world’s fastest growing agricultural regions, but among smallholder farmers, the use of new technology and crop nutrition programmes remains low.
The Company’s main aim is to be a leading crop nutrition provider specializing in lower carbon footprint nitrogen fertilisers. With our focus on nutrient use efficiency for a wide range of crops worldwide, we have developed products with the lowest environmental impact and site specific precision tools to help the end user maximize the return from their investment and use.
Yara has been supporting farmers in Africa for almost 90 years, committing to Africa’s agricultural transformation, making long-term investments and building local partnerships.
Yara is Africa’s leading crop nutrition company, providing farmers across Africa with knowledge and quality products to sustainably improve crop yields, standards, and profits. The company works in partnership with hundreds of local farmers’ organisations, community groups and non-governmental organisations to deliver crop nutrition solutions and improve farmer livelihoods. Employing over 80 agronomists in Africa, Yara combines the best agronomic practices and resources with local knowledge to help address many challenges facing the African farmer.
