Abstract: The objective of this study is to analyze the vertical coordination of the distribution of subsidized fertilizer in Mali. To do this, we adopted a qualitative research approach based on the exploitation of secondary data and the collection of primary information through individual surveys of actors involved in fertilizer supply in the Sikasso region. The primary data collected from these actors are analyzed by the content analysis method, which consists of classifying information by theme. The results obtained from the analysis show that actors involved in fertilizer supply are bound by formal and informal contract relationships, from market to cash market systems and vertical integration (in a lesser extent) as coordination tools. The results also show that the problems in the subsidized fertilizer supply chain, which may be obstacles (if no action is taken) to producers' access to the subsidy, are the asymmetry of information in subsidy access procedures, illicit fertilizer circulation, delay or nonpayment of subsidy, insufficient State fertilizer allowances, the lack of financial and logistical means at the level of the agricultural sectors and lack of agricultural credit system for producers in the DRA zone. Keywords: Vertical coordination, fertilizer, subsidy, farm, maize, supply, agriculture service.
