Abstract A literature review is given of nutrient stocks and flows in West Africa. The issue is addressed on different spatial scales, viz. agro-ecological zones, catchment areas and farms, fields and niches. Only few areas have positive nutrient balances, mainly as a result of site-specific farm management. Most areas have both low nutrient stocks and negative nutrient balances, painting a gloomy future for crop and livestock production.
