We use the Quark-Gluon String Model to obtain a quantitatively good description of the phi-meson production
experimental data in hadron-nucleon collisions on the spectra of secondary phi, as well as on the ratios of
phi/pi- and phi/K- production cross sections, for a wide energy region. We also consider the experimental
data on phi-meson production on nuclear targets, and we find that they present unusually small shadow
corrections for the inclusive density in the midrapidity region.
