Soil degradation has been a major cause of continuous decline of crop yields in Ghana over the years. Uses of mechanical and chemical approaches to replenish the soil have created serious adverse effects such as soil compaction, salinization and high soil acidity. Integrated soil fertility management promises to offer a better chance for reclaiming soil fertility and it is important that agriculture teachers acquire the knowledge, skills to be competent advocates and trainers in Integrated Soil Fertility Management.
