FONTAGRO Seed Fund: Resilience against Adverse Weather Conditions

Family farming (FA) systems located in marginal areas are frequently more vulnerable to the negative effects of the climate and its changes. The sustainable intensification (IS) of these systems should be associated with their socio-ecological diversification, and tend to increase and / or stabilize the productivity of their resources, their profitability, maintain the ecological and cultural inte...

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

By the year 2050, the agriculture sector has the challenge to increase production by 60% to feed the world. In Latin America, arid and semiarid regions (where familiar agriculture producer’s main income is extensive livestock breeding) are highly susceptible to climate change, environmental frailty and high levels of rural poverty. In these regions, research and innovation have the challenge to ...

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 small farming, it is native to America as well as 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 excessivel...

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 a Latin America and Caribbean vegetable production is characterized by a traditional open field production, highly vulnerable to adverse environmental conditions. (High temperatures, droughts, floods, photo-inhibition), low-tech and lacking in business focus. To this challenge, Fontagro together with four countries Costa Rica, Panamá, the Dominican Republic and Colombia, finance...
