Watch the video report from our recent event in Ghana

Our recent event in Ghana was a great success and feedback from our speakers, partners and delegates rated the three day conference to be an invaluable opportunity to discuss the local and international issues impacting their businesses.


The West Africa Fertilizer Agribusiness Conference is the second special collaboration between CRU Events and The African Fertilizer and Agribusiness Partnership (AFAP). Together, we aim to establish a series of forums focused on demand creation for fertilizer across Africa. In order to achieve this, discussions will take a holistic view of the agribusiness value chain to explore how the public and private sectors can partner to boost fertilizer demand.

After the success of the Africa Fertilizer Agribusiness 2016 conference, held in Dar es Salaam in October 2016, CRU and AFAP have partnered once again to focus on the West African region. By continuing this unique partnership we can offer unrivalled networking opportunities with senior decision makers from the biggest fertilizer buyers and manufacturers in some of the world’s fastest growing fertilizer markets. Building on the outcomes from last year’s event, the conference sessions will be centred around three central pillars of partnership, investment and innovation.

The event will focus on the role of fertilizers within West African agribusiness and how the West African agricultural industry can work with international partners to strengthen and improve its agricultural output. Topics under discussion will also extend beyond the fertilizer supply chain to sessions that explore other agribusiness value chain improvements that can catalyse agricultural transformation and boost fertilizer demand in Africa.
