Proceedings of the Regional Workshop of IPI/NARCTT on Potassium and Water Management in West Asia and North Africa held in Amman, Jordan, 5-6 November 2001.

The International Potash Institute, IPI, wishes to announce the publication of the Proceedings of the Regional Workshop of IPI/NARCTT on the "Potassium and Water Management in West Asia and North Africa", edited by A.E. Johnston. This was the 4th workshop organized in West Asia and North Africa, first in 1993 in Tehran, then in 1997 in Izmir and 1999 in Tehran again.

An IPI regional workshop was held in cooperation with the National Center for Agricultural Research and Technology Transfer, NARCTT, in Amman, Jordan on 5-6 November 2001. The focus of the workshop was the need to increase food production from shrinking land and water resources. Adequate use of mineral fertilizers is one of the pre-conditions to boost crop yields under the inherently adverse climatic conditions in the region. The reality, however, is that fertilizer use is highly unbalanced with the application of little potassium, although this nutrient plays a dominant role in yield and quality formation, resistance to pests, diseases and climatic stress, and in the improvement of fertilizer use efficiency. With 23 oral presentations, the workshop addressed these vital issues together with information on the fertility status of soils of the soils and fertilizer use in the participating countries.
