Use of legumes in livestock systems

Countries such as Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Paraguay and Uruguay are large producers and exporters of meat, primarily relying on direct grazing of natural fields and planted pastures with a total of almost 300 million head of cattle. The majority of land dedicated to this low-productivity pastoral livestock is found in marginal areas for agriculture, characterized by severe limitations in fertilit...

Management of agroclimatic information, modeling of structures, and sustainability indicators for agriculture in protected environments in LAC

The use of technological innovations associated with agriculture in protected environment conditions allows farmers to reconvert and differentiate their open-field production systems into more productive and sustainable systems from socio-economic and environmental points of view. The aim of this project is to strengthen the capacity of researchers, producers, and technical assistants to monitor ...

FONTAGRO Seed Fund: Resilience against Adverse Weather Conditions

Family farming (FF) systems located in marginal areas are frequently more vulnerable to the negative effects of the climate and its changes. The sustainable intensification (SI) of these systems should be associated with socioecological diversification, and tend to increase and / or stabilize resource productivity, profitability, maintain the ecological and cultural landscape integrity, and increa...

Innovation and sustainable intensification for the adaptation to climate change of family farming

By the year 2050, the agriculture sector faces the challenge of increasing production by 60% to meet global food demand. In Latin America, arid and semiarid regions (where family farmers’ main income is extensive livestock breeding) are highly susceptible to climate change, environmental frailty and experience high levels of rural poverty. In these regions, research and innovation can increase p...

More Rice with Less Emissions and Lower Water Consumption

Family growers (less than 10 hectares) in Colombia, Chile and Peru, whose livelihoods are based on rice production currently face a variety of challenges. One of the most pressing is the increase in climate variability and consequent decrease in water availability during certain stages of the crop production. On the other hand, the conventional practice of continuous flooding during cultivation re...

Implementation of an early warning system for sustainable preventive management of potato late blight (Phytophthora infestans), as an adaptation measure against the variability of climate change in Latin America

Potato is a major crop in Latin America and is the main food in family farming. It is native to America, as is the causal agent of Late Blight (LB), P. infestans. Today, LB is considered a re-emerging disease in this crop due to pathogen variability and climate instability that favors its presence and dispersion, with a high incidence and severity. Farmers, therefore, use pesticides excessively an...

Innovations for Horticulture in Protected Areas in Tropical Environments: Sustainable Intensification Option of Family Farming in the Context of Climate Change in LAC

Family farming in Latin American and Caribbean vegetable production is characterized by traditional open field production, highly vulnerable to adverse environmental conditions (high temperatures, droughts, floods, photo-inhibition), low-tech and lacking in business focus. In response to this challenge, FONTAGRO, together with Costa Rica, Panama, the Dominican Republic and Colombia, financed the p...
