Organisers: SIANI, IFAD, AVRDC and Sida
Rapporteur: Matthew Fielding, SIANI

This 9th learning event at the ARDD showcased the value wise crop choices for more nutritious food as well as the value of nutrient cycling in crop production. Using case studies from Niger and the Philippines the ‘case to scale’ effect different parts of the loop were demonstrated.

Key messages
The relative importance of local nutrient management role in supporting livelihoods, contributing to food security, improvement of crop quantity, minimize resource use and reduce pollution for smallholder farmers and peri-urban dwellers.
Human urine contains the majority of fertilizer leaving the human body and is easy to collect and could be coupled with composting for rapid up-scaling using farmer field schools concept for rapid diffusion in rural Africa and through training institutes in South East Asia.
Proper sanitary conditions are a prerequisite to gain full advantage of nutritious food, as nutrient uptake is commonly inhibited in the intestines of a person who is continuously exposed to fecal pathogens (tropical enteropathy).
